American Restaurant
$$
“Lively and very friendly locally owned restaurant bar. Congenial staff will make you feel at home the first time you come in and remember you on your second. Innovative fare and excellent cocktails. An all around fun atmosphere just a 15-20 minute walk away. Highly recommend. Dinner served Monday-Thursday from 5pm-10pm, Friday and Saturday from 5pm-11pm, and Sunday from 4pm-10pm. Saturday and Sunday Brunch from 11am-3pm. Lunch served Friday only from 11am-3pm. If you want to experience true local Boston flavor, this is the place to be. ”

“Great food, drinks, and ambiance close to home. I love the "Giannone chicken under a brick" and the "Penne Bolognaise." This is a reliable place if I want a nice dinner without having the hassle of looking for parking and going into downtown.”

Italian Restaurant
$$
“It's a cute little Italian restaurant close by! However, there are a ton of more options in the North End (Boston's Italian Section). Bring cash if you go to the North End since a lot of areas are cash only.”

Sandwich Place
$$
“This tiny, unpretentious sandwich shop’s name says it all. Breakfast and lunch are the only options here, but when homemade soups, pressed sandwiches, and bagelwiches taste this good, who needs dinner? Just across the street from Boston Medical Center, Blunch is a popular destination for med students, faculty, and staff (you can even call in your order ahead). Try the Giving Tree, a scrumptious combination of smoked turkey, cheddar cheese, shaved green apples, honey Dijon dressing, and greens on multigrain bread, and top it off with one of the eatery’s oh-so-gooey triple chocolate chip cookies.”
