Traveling hound needs recommendations for 2 dinners in Brookline

I am traveling for work this week to Boston-area and will be staying in Brookline for 2 nights. Any recommendations for restaurants within a 10-15 minute walk from the Coolidge Corner/St. Paul station area would be appreciated. All cuisines are welcome!

  1. here's what near and here's what you can easily get to hopping the green line c train which stops right by your hotel. Heading into Boston, about a 10 block walk: Taberno de Haro, excellent Spanish. Szechuan Garden, very good szichuanese, Beacon Street Grill, nice tavern food, Japonaise for great breakfast pastries, good coffee and tea, Budda, pan-Asian, is right across from the Holiday Inn. Heading in the other direction, toward Coolidge Corner, several Japanese options, my favorite being Shiki, but the closest being Fugakyu, very nice upscale American with seafood emphasis would be Lineage (one of my favorites for a nice dinner), pleasant vietnamese (Lemon Grass) and pleasant Thai (Khao Sarn). That's just the tip of the iceberg. People like to eat in Brookline.

    1. Right in Coolidge Corner on Harvard St is Lineage, great food, great cocktails, and if you sit at the bar, $1 oysters from 5-7pm!

        Second Lineage at the bar or for the best tavern food The Washington Square Tavern.

      2. Cognac Bistro is also lovely. VERY short walk from north on Harvard St. from Coolidge Corner. Reservations are recommended--it's tiny.

        1. welcome in advance! i hope this might be helpful:

          if you end up narrowing down your options, let people know here; there is ALOT of CH discussion about that area, so lots of people will jump in to advise.

          I don't know where you are visiting from but we have some terrific ice cream in Boston and in CC there is a great place- JPLicks.
