Within walking distance from MFA

  • 8

Taking some guests to the MFA on Sunday morning, then looking for something to do for lunch, sit down (not takeout). They're unlikely to want to deal with parking a second time. Where would you go for lunch within walking distance of the MFA?

  1. Sounds like you want the Squealing Pig.

    1. Check out the restaurants in the MFA.

      1. BTW, the MFA is closed this Sunday AM!


        And with the members' opening of the new wing, parking and entry wll be packed!

          we're members, but thanks for watching out! :)

        2. It's not a short walk but I like to go to Brasserie Jo when visiting the MFA.

          120 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02116

          1. Thaitation (used to be Brown Sugar) is just a short walk across the Fens. Unless the weather is bad, it's easily doable.

            1. As well as the flags here,I was at the MFA Wednesday - it seemed about 90% of MFA was not accessible. Nothing American accessible - except Richard Avedon photos. $20 entrance so if it's like Wednesday...

              1. The Mission Bar and Grill at Brigham Circle is an easy walk and has a nice brunch menu on Sat. and Sun.
