Boston University area lunch recs
Will be visiting BU on Saturday and need several reasonably priced restaurant recs for lunch - a good burger, mediterranean, interesting sandwiches, BBQ. Please no pizza or italian. Recommendations are very appreciated. Thanks.
Directly across from West Campus are choices that include UBurger for hamburgers. There's also one in Kenmore Sq. Also at West Campus is Brown Sugar for really good Thai.
More upscale but not really pricy is Eastern Standard in Kenmore. Also Petit Robert if you want reasonable French at a fairly low price point.
There isn't much BBQ of note in Boston but most anything else in the world can be found up Commonwealth Avenue into Allston.
528 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215
Brown Sugar Cafe
1033 Commonwealth Ave, Boston, MA 02215
To clarify, most of the interesting places in Allston are on or near Brighton Ave, which splits off Commonwealth at a spot called Packards Corner, just beyond the Star Market.
In particular, a place called Garlic N Lemons, near the corner of Brighton and Harvard, will cover both the Mediterranean and interesting sandwich options. The spicy chicken shwarma on saj is heavenly.
BU's "campus" is large and long, stretching up along Comm. Ave. There are a lot of choices around, it depends where you want to stop for lunch.
