      define close?

      blue dragon could work too.

      1. re: hotoynoodle

        Should have thought of this. Blue Dragon is a great idea.

        1. re: hotoynoodle

          Walking distance 5-10 minute walk.

          1. re: dtermine

            the only thing within 5 minutes of south station is its own food court.

            trade and les zyg are your closest options then.

            1. re: hotoynoodle

              Les Zyg, sorriso, O Ya, Radius, Kingston Station, Smith and Wollensky, and Trade all less than or just at a 5 minute walk.

                Thanks. Have you ever been to Giacomo's?

              2. re: hotoynoodle

                Anything on Beach Street in C-town is within a 5-10 minute walk. I do it all the time and am not a particularly fast walker.

        2. Les Zygomates could be fun, especially if it's a night they have a band.

              Or if they'd prefer Italian to French, Les Zyg's brother Sorriso is right next door.

              1. re: Niblet

                Food at Sorriso is meh at best. great beer list though.

            2. Within half a mile (a ten minute walk for most people), and with a presumably not terribly adventurous teen crowd, I'd suggest Trade, Sorriso, Flour, and Papagayo.


                1. I work in the area and think that Papgayo and Les Zyg are your two best bets. Both are lively, have decent menus, and neither is too long a walk. Blue Dragon is great, but often crowded. If it's before 4pm, Channel Cafe is funky and has nice soups & sandwiches. I still haven't been to Tavern Road yet, so can't comment. Let us know where you end up!

                      wow - I hadn't heard! I was there about a month ago. It was a great independent place - I'll miss it.

                        Per Grub Street Boston, "[Channel Cafe o]wner Joyce Parlapiano tells us that she and business partner/chef Tammy Watson will reopen on Newtonville's Washington Street with a 'more elaborate' restaurant called Verrine."


                  1. radius burgers are always my idea of a fun time!

                      Radius probably not the best atmosphere for teenage girls.

                      1. re: dtermine

                        That is not remotely close to South Station. More like a 25 minute walk.

                      2. Ended up at Sorisso. Service was a bit slow but the teenagers really liked the pizza. Thanks for the suggestions!
