Within walking distance from MFA

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?

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

      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...

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

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

                Sounds like you want the Squealing Pig.
