I was planning on Toro or Coppa, only to find out they dont' do lunch Saturdays. Where is the best lunch spot in Boston?

    I too like The Bristol for Saturday lunch. It is indeed relaxing. A window table has a great view of the Public Gardens. Food, service and wine is very nice.
    Enjoy,

      I go 2-3 times a year for lunch at The Bristol. Food is good and the atmosphere is relaxing.

        I had lunch last week at the Bristol for the first time in a long time. No one will ever accuse it of being cutting edge, but it's still a great place for an upscale lunch. And they now take reservations on opentable.com.

        Saturday lunch is a good time to hit the typically jammed Garden at the Cellar.

          Guess it really depends on what you're in the mood for. For me it could be anywhere from pizza to beef wellington. That said, here are my recent favorites:
          Artu (North End); Shrimp scampi pizza or potato and prosciutto pizza
          Neptune Oyster (North End); what else? oysters, or fried clam app and a lobster roll
          Russell House Tavern; flatbread pizza or brunch fare
          Marliave; beef wellington? or apps like a nice cheese selection
