Restaurants near Courthouse

Off to see Cirque du Soleil on Tuesday and am looking for recs for dining near there which is between the Federal Courthouse and the Institute of Contemporary Art. The inedible Anthony's Pier 4 is NOT an option and I'm not wild about either the Barking Crab or the Daily Catch.

The Barking Crab
88 Sleeper Street, Boston, MA 02210

Soleil Cafe
1153 Broadway, Somerville, MA 02144

Daily Catch
2 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210

Anthony's Pier 4 Restaurant
140 Northern Ave, Boston, MA 02210

  1. sportello & flour bakery come to mind.

    1. Try Sam's, the restaraunt that recently opened in the new Louis Boston (right next to the circus). It has been well-received and has a phenomenal view of the harbor.

      If that doesn't work for you, walk over to Sportello. About 10 minutes by foot from the circus.

      348 Congress Street, Boston, MA 02110

        by the way, anthony's pier 4 makes a decent prime rib and had excellent wine at oodt prices though there is much to avoid in their menu, i admit.

          second sam's.

          the channel cafe is casual and i've had some nice dinners there. sal's for pizza.

          sel de la terre is about a 15 minute walk from your tents.
