Dining near NEU dorms /Columbus Tremont MA Ave

Well, my chowhound daughter has moved from the Huntington Ave side of NEU campus to Columbus (#700). We dined at Darryl's Corner Bar last night. We seek other options for brunch, lunch and dinner, a 5-20 min. walk from the 700's on Columbus. Her dorm is across from the BOS Municiple tennis court, 5 min. from MA Ave and Columbus and in back is 971 Tremont (Papa Johns ewwww)....

I want a great year of education for my kiddo and a great year of chow experiences for our family....

Much appreciation

  1. At the Corner of Mass Ave and Tremont is an outpost of Parish Cafe - excellent spot for sandwiches.

    At Mass Ave and Washington there are a clutch of restaurants: Mike's City Diner for brunch/breakfast, as well as Toro - probably the best tapas restaurant in the city. Seiyo is also there - a sushi-cum-wine bar as well as Terenga, a terrific West African spot. A little further down Washington is Flour, one of the better bakeries in the city. In that neighborhood, on Shawmut, there's Orinoco (Venezuelan)

    A little further down Tremont, towards Melnea Cass, there's Ali's Roti - probably the second--best curry stand in the city.

    By the way, around the corner from Darryl's is a divey-Jazz bar called Wally's. The liquor is crap, but the Jazz sounds like Jazz.

        Happy to help out!

        Lots of Northeasterners that have good palates end up in the JP corridor instead of Brigham Circle when they move out of the dorms. Not a bad tip to pass onto your daughter - lots of fine South/Central American food between Jackson Square and Hyde Square.
