lunch in Newton/128 area

I need a good spot for a business lunch on a Monday in or around 128/Newton -- the closer to the highway, the better. Thanks!

    Food wise you can't do better than Sweet Basil in Needham Center. Warning: no credit cards accepted

    If that's too far off the highway then how about the Biltmore in Newton Upper Falls?

      I like Spiga a lot. Right off of 128 on the newton highlands/needham border. Great homemade lunchtime Italian food (with a wood? oven for some great al forno dishes).

        Spiga is good and quiet for a business lunch.

        Dunn Gaerin's on Eliot St. in Newton--very close to Rt. 9/Rt. 128 entrance.

          Thanks for the suggestions. Ended up at Blue on Highland but I will keep Spiga and Dunn Gaerin's in mind for the future.
