What is everyone doing for dinner tonight?

We usually do late night sushi or small plates on Friday. Lately been stuck on Myers and Change and Douzo. What is everyone else doing for dinner tonight?

  1. Eating the other half of my canned soup. :(

    What I would LIKE to be doing, though, is sitting at Masa and om-nom-noming on their small (very small) but varied tapas.

      Half an ABP turkey BLT for me. It wasn't bad at all. Tomorrow is my foray into the W towns.

        Joanie, if that is Watertown, stop at Sofra-- we had the best lamb shawarma there last week. That and the sausage flatbread are a great shared meal.

        We also bought a braid of great Armenia Sting cheese for a piece I was doing for Serious Eats. That alone is worth the trip to Watertown.

          No it was Wakefield and Winchester. But that damn Fred's Franks decided the weather wasn't worth bringing the cart out today. What a pretty area that is by the lake tho, definitely will try again in the next couple Saturdays.

            Fred's pretty good about posting his schedule on his website at

              Yep, I saw that too late. Just didn't think twice about it since it was such a hot sunny day.

    2. Greek festival in Arlington!

        Me too, most likely, but definitely over the weekend.

      2. Maybe Farm Grille, but I'm going late, so might miss out on the gyros. In which case, maybe Virgilio's.

          When do they stop the gyros? Might have to stop there after work! Canned soup be damned.

          1. re: Prav

            Seems like the schedule is they're out when I want one really badly. I only think it happened to me a couple times, but it hurt, gosh darn it. I think I was there after 7:30 or so. I'll probably be there around 8. I was thinking Baza prepared food if that happens.

              The Baza prepared food has been nasty looking the past few times I've been.. :(

                I agree - and sick as it sounds, I still want to try it. All the sauces had congealed, and meat looked all dried out like jerky.

                1. re: nsenada

                  That's chowish :) They recently started sprinkling sesame seeds on everything, which rules the place out for me (allergic).

                  Those lamb shanks look good, but I had one and it was lumpy congealed grease on a bone. The pelmeini were alright though. I think the best thing I've had is the solyanka, the hearty sausage soup - kind of sweet and sour. It's good for cold weather. Oh, and the stewed duck legs with apples aren't bad either.

                  Maybe it's authentic, who knows. :)

          2. re: nsenada

            Virgilio's across from the dearly departed Mill Falls?

            I lived across the street from there for 3 years and never went in. My loss?

            Tratoria Toscano for us tonight!

              I think it's a great spot for pizza, and a frozen in time 70s ambience. Maybe it was a fluke, but I had a large sausage and hot cherry pepper pizza that was eight bucks, and really awesome in a Regina's kind of way.

                That's a suprise! :) I'm hitting up Burkes for some lobsters.
