Downtown lunch suggestions, please!
We are moving our offices from the suburbs to downtown Boston - 10 High Street, to be precise.
Looking for suggestions for lunch options in that neighborhood, specifically: 1) carry out recommendations in any food/cuisine category; and 2) sit-down lunch spots that are not break-the-bank (i.e., the hotel restos in the area). All suggestions greatly appreciated.
I have to say I'm not a fan of Max's Deli. It might be a case of familiarity breeds contempt because we have them brought into the office a lot for meetings..today in fact.
Far better and a little walk, I like Sam LaGrassa's on Province St...best pastrami or corned beef in town.
Ive become a fan of Casa Razdora, I've only had the proscuitto sandwiches but he tells he makes great meatballs on Tues..will report back. Rest of menu looks good too.
Fan of Viga, DGuru, Burrito Express on Kingston.
strongly agree with pernil rec from Latin Cafe mentioned. Had it Friday..wow, come hungry..same area, Zo's for gyros.
used to be a big fan of Chacarerro Chilean sandwiches but haven't had the urge lately.
Sakura Bana..excellent Japanese..eat in or takeout.
Thai..if you have to have Thai, Rock Sugar is ok, about the best I've found in the FD. Key to getting their best is ordering something that needs to be cooked to order and isn't sitting on a steam table.
Nice day, lobster roll at Hooks on a bench
Cart on the Greenway that does BBQ, name escapes me..someone else wwill know
Chinatown is close to you with lots of options.

Agree with the Silk Road BBQ rec, on the Greenway. Need to get back to Chacarero.
So does that mean Razdora will be doing meatball subs today? I'm due for one. Maybe I'll see you there.
Disagree with Foumami, below. Another hound, or maybe it was me, said that Foumami made their mouth sad. Just walk the extra five min to Mei Sum. But I guess it doesn't hurt to try it yourself.
Also below, I agree that Sultan's Kitchen is better than Boston Kebab House. However, BKH's meze bar is handy when you want *exactly this amount* of some specific items.

Early lunch so sorry I missed you. Great meatball sub..meatballs, sauce and bread all of high quality. Not as large as Al's but lighter meatballs.
For more sit down, agree with SDLT, Kingston Station, Marliave. Haven't been but Petit Robert's menu looks good.

Boston Kebab House is my favorite lunch downtown.
D'Guru might be my 2nd favorite and its a few blocks from your office.
Chinatown is close by, as is Al's South Street cafe.
Your office is super close to the Dewey Square Clover Food Lab truck. There is also a nice farmers market there come summer.

Andale at 125 Summer street has good take out Mexican
Andale Mexican Grill

I think the moral of the story is that there are tons of good places to eat lunch in the financial district.
Some more I'd add to the list. Foumami for Asian-ish sandwiches/salad. Viga for all things Italian. Sandwich Express on Kingston is really solid.

For a less-expensive sit-down lunch, I like Sel de la Terre near Long Wharf. They have some good sandwhich options for around $10 and a three course lunch for ~$20. Good option to sit outside when the weather's nice. I've found their dinners to be slipping, but their lunches are still good. They also a small area for take-out.
Also, Flour isn't too far away for take-away. I don't recall seeing that mentioned yet.

also in that immediate area, Pizzeria Regina's by the slice in South Station. if you have time to walk across the Congress st bridge, Sportello does lunch, also Papagayo across the Summer st bridge for tableside guacamole.
