MASkibride Apr 21, 2012 07:12 AM

I need some recommendations for a fun lunch spot in Boston or Brookline today. Taking my niece and her friend (they are sophomores in college). Looking for fun/nice atmoshere, good food at moderate prices (entrees under $20). Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

    for moderately priced food, i would go east asian; rod dee, sichuan gourmet or a number of places in chinatown. but to me, good food is also fun.

      Saturday lunch options are somewhat limited for what you are looking for, but there are a few good options.

      In boston: Eastern Standard, Scampo, Bistro Du Midi, Parish Cafe or Neptune Oyster (If you stick to the Burger or Lobster Roll for $25) The Asian recommendations from Cambridgedoctpr are also good.

      In brookline: Cognac Bistro.

        I like Khao Sarn in Coolidge Corner. Slightly nicer atmosphere than most Thai.
