Looking for a good place, within walking distance, to eat ethnic food - maybe middle eastern, mexican- before the carole king/james taylor concert sunday night. Anything fresh and tasty will work. Recommendations??

      Thanks for the recommendation, but it looks like they're only open until 4. We'll have to try it another time. Any other thoughts?

      Neptune Oyster is probably your best bet.

        Is Lala Rokh too far away? Anna's Tacqueria to mixed in review?
        Ma Soba sushi's pretty good.
        How about Villa Mexico (in the Gampy's gas station on Cambridge st. across from MGH)? Very popular here on CH.

        For Middle Eastern, Phoenicia on Cambridge Street is a relatively short walk and very good.

          No no no. Please don't. It's been really terrible for, like, the past two years.

          The concert was excellent, by the way.

          We ate at Trattoria di Monica before the concert and had some satisfying meals. Excellent black pasta with seared scallops, mushroom ravioli and a squash ravioli special. We had the arugala salad and the grilled green and white asparagus.

            Nebo is great! Not really ethnic but always top notch.
