Delicious lunch in Harvard Square?
I am taking an elderly friend of mine out for lunch in Harvard Square, she lives near by, so walking is preferred but not essential.
She lives on a very limited income and I would like her to be able to taste delicious food. Doesn't have to be fancy,but does have to be delicious. Ideas? Thanks!
Bartley's has good though not "gourmet" burgers.
There is reasonable pizza at Otto's and Cambridge 1.
I like Tamarind Bay though the lunches are not their strongest suit.
I have not been to the Harvard Square spot but Orinoco could be delicious and relatively inexpensive.
To some of the other suggestions: last time I ate at Bartley's they didn't have a restroom, and forgetting for a moment the need for a restroom Otto doesn't actually have any seating save the 2 tables outside on the sidewalk, so neither would work, I think, for a lunch with an elderly friend.
It wasn't mind-blowing by any stretch but I spent I think $15 on lunch at Grafton Street a few weeks ago.
Orinoco would be a good pick in terms of price to tasty. Russell House would also be a good pick; most of their lunch stuff appears to be sub $15.
