Dinner on or near Mission Hill

My sister will be in town for a long day at New England Baptist Hospital on Mission Hill - I'll be meeting her for dinner around 5pm.

She likes...Applebee's, Olive Garden...I'm a vegetarian with adventurous taste. And actually, I started eating fish so I'm not even vegetarian anymore. I'm looking for someplace where she will feel comfortable, we can talk for a couple of hours - and there is something for me to eat other than an iceberg lettuce salad or deep-fried cheese, or other cheese-centered food.

We could drive, walk or take the T...but I'd rather not travel so far...I'm guessing that Brookline might be our best bet, but something right on Mission Hill would be great...I guess we could also go to JP or the South End.

I will be enormously grateful for any suggestions.

  1. You might try Family Restaurant in Brookline Village. She could order from the American diner side of the menu and you could order from the Turkish Veggie friendly side and you could hang out there and talk without being rushed out. It's a friendly place.

    1. The Mission is a bar and grill right on the corner of S. Huntington and Tremont (Brigham Circle) that has decent food (steaks, bugers, salmon, salads etc.) It's not super fancy but it's not your standard bar food either. Penguin Pizza also in Brigham Circle has really creative pizza's as well as good draft beer.but might be loud and crowded. Pomodoro in Brookline Village isn't far from Mission Hill and has great Italian food and a quieter atmosphere.

      1. re: nachovegas

        thanks...your name just started to make me wonder if there's any pretty good Mexican place around there.

        And - I know that Papusa Guanaca in Hyde Sq. wasn Salvadoran not Mexican but...too bad that's gone, I think that would've worked.
