ladies lunch on newbury st.
just fyi, make sure you don't let that truffle salt sit around too long; loses its impact before long. you might also want to consider buying a small bottle of Urbani white truffle oil (at Formaggio South End or Fresh Pond.) Personally, i found this oil more flavorful and cost effective than the salt. Another fav truffle condiment of mine is the Honey Truffle Mustard from farwestfunghi.com or at their San Fran shop in the Ferry Bldg.
Your chef friend may enjoy the menu at Parish Cafe- the sandwiches were all created by various Boston chefs, and named for them.A number of excellent ones. The lovely cafe in the BostonPubLibr. got a good Globe review a while ago. Just a little further away, in the South End, Toro does lunch now and had been well liked on CH.(it is owned by one of Boston's most famous chefs, Ken Oringer of Clio.
