Boston College graduation 5/19

Daughter getting a Masters on 5/19; need a place for a late lunch (around 3:00pm) for 6 people. Realize most of close by places will already be booked; made a backup reservation at The Cottage in Wellesley, would like a nicer place but most nice restaurants don't start serving before 5:00. Any suggestions.

  1. The Fireplace in Brookline has a mid-day menu between 2:30 and 5:00. You can check them out on line, see their menu, and decide if it appeals. It is an attractive spot and makes one of the best burgers in town. Good bar, good salads as well. It's on Beacon and Washington Street, less than 10 minutes typically from BC. I would, of course, call them and make sure they can accommodate you.

    1. Khao Sarn is a nice Thai Restaurant in Coolidge Corner. Also for Americanized Chinese Golden Temple has a pretty nice dining room.
