Looking for a good lunch spot in Somerville

lasiciliana Nov 29, 2011 10:24 AM

My coworkers and I are doing a Taza Chocolate factory tour which starts at 4pm.
We want to have a nice lunch before, probably 2-3:30... any recommendations for something in union square or close enough to the Taza (561 Windsor Street, Somerville).

Any type of cuisine is okay...just looking for recommendations.

Thank you!

    All-Star Sandwich Bar in Inman - within walking distance.

      do they have entrees or just sandwiches? It's a company holiday lunch so we would like something a little more than sandwiches.

      thanks for the rec though!

        In that case, how big a party will you have? And what is your maximum price per person? A lot of the non-sandwich places in Inman and Union aren't open for lunch.

          there are 4 of us, maybe 5... price per person: about $30-40ish, including a drink or two?

            Muqueca and Machu Picchu Charcoal Chicken are good suggestions. Also, Russell House Tavern - City Girl Cafe -

          Ronnarong Thai
          Buk Kyung for Korean (not fancy, but food is good)

          If Tupelo is open for lunch, it's a fun spot.

            Casa Portugal does lunch. So does Atwood's, Thurs-Sun. (never been, don't know how "nice").
