  1. 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

    Neptune Oyster
    63 Salem St Ste 1, Boston, MA 02113

    10 Bosworth Street, Boston, MA 02108

    Russell House Tavern
    14 JFK Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

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

      1. 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

        2. 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.
