  2  9 Tastes of Thai8$$Harvard Sq.Excellent Thai down below street level. Used to be "Bangkok." Similar menu and interior, and still great food. Lunch special boxes weekdays.
  3  99 Restaurant7$Woburn et al.Surprisingly good these days. I remember this as a cheap steak house from thirty years ago. Today, the food is pretty good and reasonably priced.
  4  Abbey, The7$$PorterTrendy, well prepared, small portions. Good not great. Hyperactive air conditioning.
  5  Alive & Kicking7$$Cambridge, Putnam Ave @ Western AveFirst-rate lobster salad sandwiches. Live lobster and good fresh fish market, too. Seating outside under roof or umbrella. Pray for good weather, or take it home.
  6  All-Star Sandwiches8$Inman Sq.Very good, large sandwiches. Great fries. What more can you ask for of a sandwich shop? Rumor says that the mac & cheese is killer. Reality: it's good but hardly killer.
  7  Amelia's7$$$KendallSmall Italian place; a few outside tables, too. Good salads, veal, and pastas. They lose a star for the boring dessert, though.
  8  Antico Forno5$North EndOkay Italian. The brick-oven pizza is better, rates a 6; thin,yeasty crust. Caesar salad very weak.
  9  Antonio's Cucina Italiana7$$Mass General - Beacon HillGood lunch Italian, sandwiches and pasta dishes. When they say the sauce is spicy, it is.
  10  Assaggio5$$North EndMediocre Italian. Right neighborhood, but bland dishes, and not cheap. Good bread and oil, though.
  11  Audubon Circle7$$Kenmore Sq.Looks like a neighborhood bar, but has great appetizers and light meals. The potstickers are particularly good.
  12  B. Good5$HarvardRumored to be killer burgers and fries, but disappointing. Okay burger; gummy sweet potato fries.
  13  Bahama Breeze6$$TyngsboroPretty good burgers, shrimp, salads. But the fish tacos are made with these teeny little minnows; beware if you are actually hungry.
  14  Bartley's Burger Cottage9$HarvardOutstanding burgers and fries. Best in Boston, according to the Boston Globe and the Wall Street Journal and CitySearch. And me. Huge selection of burger accessories. Warning: no restrooms.
  15  Beat Bistro8$$$HarvardSubterranean restaurant and jazz club. Brasserie with a distinctly French and Italian flair. Seafood, steaks, burgers, pastas, rices. Good stuff, but pricy.
  16  Beijing Tokyo6$Main St, CambridgeSmall neighborhood place. Sushi and Chinese. Pretty good sushi, rolls and nigiri. Chinese dishes are good but undistinguished.
  17  BerryLine6$HarvardFrozen yogurt, three flavors daily, and add your selection of evil toppings. Does not compare with Yogurt Planet in Austin.
  18  Bertucci's8$Main St., many othersThe Best brick oven pizza and pizza rolls. Started out small on Main St, became a chain. Still great. (Harvard Sq. closed, sob.)
  19  Blue Ribbon BBQ8$$ArlingtonReal down-home barbecue: brisket, pork, chicken, ribs (several kinds). Several sauces, from sweet to hot to vinegar. Extremely limited seating, so plan to take out.
  20  Bob's Clam Hut8$$Kittery, MEGreat fried clams and other fried seafood in the middle of the Kittery discount mile. Extremely popular. (Ms T has a frequent diner's card.)
  21  Bollywood Grill7$North AndoverGood Indian lunch buffet. Spicy tikka masalas, one chicken, one cheese. Very tasty saag paneer. Naan on the table is dry; wait for the fresh naan that they will bring.
  22  Boloco (died)8$HarvardDandy and economical, student place. Bowl of rice with choices of veggies, sauces, proteins. The one I had (with buffalo chicken) was excellent.
  23  Bon Me7$KendallAnother tiny eat-in or take-out place in Kendall Square. Vietnamese pho, salads.
  24  Bonchon8$$HarvardMany things Korean, including great wings, salads, dumplings, etc. The garlic soy sauce is wonderful with a slightly sweet edge. And spicy really means spicy when the menu says so.
  25  Bonefish7$$BurlingtonSeafood chain. First went to one of these in NJ. Good soup, salad, sandwich, reasonably priced. Entrees more expensive.
  26  Border Cafe (fire, reopened?)8$HarvardMexican and Cajun dishes both. The Cajun is outstanding. Haven't tried the Mex yet. Will go back.
  27  Boston Burger8$Harvard, DavisGreat variety of burgers and a couple good salads. Best burgers in Harvard Square IMHO.
  28  Boston Burger Company, The8$Harvard, Davis, Boylston St.Great, giant burgers, large selection. Good sides, too: homemade chips very good, fries okay, salads dandy and huge. If this were closer to the Coop, it would put some others out of business; worth the walk.
  29  Brasserie Jo8$$$Prudential - CopleyFrench, right out of Casablanca (movie). Uniformly excellent appetizers, onion soup to die for, entrees.
  30  Bukowski (moved slightly)6$InmanOkay steak sandwich, good fries that would be great if cooked just a little longer. Beware: cash only! Also, the dimmest, darkest rest room ever, like maybe two watts.
  31  Burren, The7$Davis Sq.Irish bar with good beer selection. Bar food, burgers. The Harvard SITN meets there some Tuesdays.
  32  Burton's Grill7$$Burlington, Peabody, NashuaSeafood, Italian, steaks, salads, sandwiches. Nice atmosphere, too. Dandy.
  33  Cafe Sushi7$$$HarvardExpensive. Reasonable selection. Unusual fish seasonally. Some rolls made strangely, e.g., Japanese cucumber in one chunk instead of shredded. Strange cane sugar soda products, too, to be eschewed.
  34  Cafe of India (died)6$$HarvardGood lunch buffet, but didn't agree with me later. Tandoori chicken very flavorful, and pakoras and carrot-green pepper veggies; naan and tikka masala only okay.
  35  Cambridge Brewing Company6$Kendall Sq.Good beer selection, which you expect from its name, but food mediocre. Fish and chips okay, but wrong fish (pollock vs haddock or cod). Burger popular but not great.
  36  Cambridge Common7$HarvardGood burgers, steaks, sandwiches. Big menu with many interesting choices. Have to go again to try some more.
  37  Cancun Taqueria (died)5$HarvardDisappointing Mexican. Indifferent chips, salsa, chili relleno. Okay enchilada, but bland sauce.
  38  Canteen (died)7$Harvard, CentralGreat breakfast dishes, eggs and such made in innovative ways. Sandwiches, too. Very small. Eat-in or take-out. Breakfast and lunch only.
  39  Cantina la Mexicana6$Union SqGood but not great Mexican. Beans make the nachos wet and soggy. Tacos and burritos okay but need more salsa.
  40  Capt's Waterfront Grill & Pub7$Salem waterfrontExcellent appetizers; have to go back to have a full meal. Very good lobster bisque. Little lobster pizzas got raves.
  41  Casa Portugal7$$InmanAuthentic Portuguese, down to the Brazilian shows on the TV. Soups, breads, meats, fish. Must go back to try more dishes.
  42  Casablanca (died) 7$$HarvardRestaurant under the Brattle Theater. Interesting and varied menu, good seafood, steak, fowl, with savory sauces. Terrific murals on the walls depicting characters and scenes from the movie.
  43  Cellar, The7$$Harvard Sq., Central Sq.Good trendy, upscale-from-pub food and drink. Popular bar downstairs, restaurant upstairs, wine shop next door. Brunches good. Portions sometimes really small. Love the tomato soup and grilled cheese. Between Harvard Square and Central Square.
  44  Charlie's Kitchen7$HarvardGood burger and sandwich joint about two blocks from the square. Pub atmosphere. Good burgers and fries, and other types of sandwich. Outside tables in season, too.
  45  Cheese Boy (died)8$South StationGrilled cheese sandwiches of every possible description. Your choices of breads, cheeses, meats, veggies. A hearty meal to take with you on the train.

  47  Christina's7$InmanIce cream parlor in Inman Square. Large daily selection of flavors, and really good. Some frozen yogurts and sorbets, too. A couple doors down the street, they also have a spice shop with a large selection of common and exotic spices, and a great selection of sea salts.
  48  Cilantro7$HarvardChinese, which you would not have guessed from the name. Pretty good, and some unusual dishes. Dim sum on weekends, too.
  49  City Slicker Cafe7$SomervilleUnusual little sandwich lunch bar. Comfort food.
  50  Cobblestones7$$$LowellLarge, loud, white-tablecloth place for groups and functions. The lobster mac and cheese is wonderful. Steaks, fish, other things just okay to good.
  51  Coddington Brewery7$$Newport, RIGood place for beer and conversation.
  52  Coolidge Corner Clubhouse7$Coolidge CornerSports bar with, surprisingly, more sandwiches than TVs. Pretty good, too. Will go back to try more.
  53  Cruiseport7$$GloucesterBayside restaurant with nice deck. Lobster rolls cheap specials some days of the week. And really good.
  54  Cucina Toscana7$$$NashuaWonderful, but bring your wallet. (Reported by Ms T.)
  55  D'Angelo7$all over (200 of them)If you can't get to Philadelphia, or even to Jersey Mike's, for a cheesesteak sandwich, go here.
  56  Dado Tea7$HarvardNot just a tea shop. Good salads, surprisingly generous, and wrap sandwiches. My default lunch salad place in the square.
  57  Daedalus8$$HarvardGood selection of trendy dishes, sandwiches, fish, salads, and drinks. Great roof terrace for outside dining when weather permits.
  58  Daikanyama7$$$LexingtonSushi and Japanese dishes. Yummy, artfully presented. Good variety of sushi, including many special rolls. Pricy.
  59  Demos Restaurant4$WatertownVery indifferent Greek. Order then sit. Bland and not well presented.
  60  Diva7$DavisDecent Indian buffet. A couple weak dishes, but the chicken tikka masala, saag paneer, naan, and rice in milk were all very good. A basket of freshly made naan for each table.
  61  Dolphin Seafood (moved)8$$NatickVery good fin-fish and shellfish dishes, lunch and dinner. Much more upscale than it used to be. After forty years in our neighborhood, moved to Natick, sob.
  62  Dumpling House7$$Central/HarvardAnother really good Chinese restaurant. All the traditional and some unusual dishes. Many Chinese diners, which is a good sign.
  63  Durgin Park4$Logan AirportVery disappointing. Maybe the one downtown still has decent food and surly servers, but the airport one is a dud.
  64  Earl's Kitchen & Bar7$$Assembly RowGood burgers, salads, fish tacos. Great fries. Have to go back to try more goodies.
  65  East Coast Grill 6$$$InmanFamous place, big variety of unusual dishes and sauces. Often wonderful flavors and combinations, but a recent visit was very disappointing: some bland, some way too spicy. Warning: the Inner Beauty hot sauce is seriously incendiary, mainly habanero.
  66  El Potro6$Union Square SomervilleAcceptable Mexican. The chili relleno was a little odd, but reasonable. Burrito okay. Sauces good. Chips and salsa only okay.
  67  Emack and Bolio's8$Downtown, AquariumIce cream, probably the best in town. Fabulous texture, and great flavors to boot. My vote for best in Boston (so far).
  68  Emma's Pizza (died)6$KendallCompetent thin-crust pizza. Sauce and cheese a little bland.
  69  Ernesto's Pizza7$Assembly RowPizza by the very large pair of slices, a quarter of a pie. Red and white pizzas in a dozen or more flavors, some expected, some surprising. Excellent crust. Sauces need more zing.
  70  Felipe's Taqueria7$HarvardRoll-your-own burritos, soft tacos, quesadillas. You decide what goes in, they cook, you add sauces. Pretty good, and very cost-effective. Sounds like Chipotle but isn't: it's better. Moved into new digs where Bertucci's used to be on Brattle St.
  71  Figs7$Charles St.Excellent lunch place. Salads and Sandwiches. Everything tasty. Haven't tried the pizza yet, but will be back.
  72  Fin's Sushi + Grill7$$Mass General - Beacon HillVery good sushi, reasonably priced. Good rolls, especially spicy ones, good nigiri. Tamago a little dry.
  73  Fire & Ice (died)8$HarvardMongolian-grill style buffet with multiple trips. Oriental and fish and Italian and salads, even burgers. Great fun, manic. Noisy: don't plan on having an intimate conversation. Go hungry.
  74  Fireplace, The6$$BrooklineGood soup, burger, pasta. Off-street parking in rear. But slow service and limp french fries.
  75  First Printer (died)7$$$HarvardGood Sunday brunch entrees, sandwiches and pastas, with very good fries. Salads weak. (The name? The first printer in British American Colonies lived there in the 1600s.) Lobster dishes good but pricy. Recently changed hands, though.
  76  Fish Shack, The8$$RockportVery good shellfish and fin fish. Want a fried-fried lunch? This is the place. Right on the water, dead center in Rockport.
  77  Fishbones7$$ChelmsfordUpscale but informal seafood. The fish was wonderful, perfectly cooked. Also salads and sandwiches. Go back again.
  78  Five Horses Tavern8$DavisGreat atmosphere, bar and table area. Innovative dishes, and all dandy. And many craft beers, for which they are known.
  79  Flame8$Harvard SqFusion Chinese, Japanese, sushi. Hot dishes are hot, beware. Hot pots, too, which we haven't tried yet. Downstairs where the Orson Welles used to be.
  80  Flat Patties6$HarvardGood burger, good grilled cheese, and inexpensive. Skinny fries looked greasy, didn't have them.
  81  Flat Top Johnny's7$$KendallAppetizers, sandwiches, burgers, pretty good.
  82  Florentine Cafe7$$North EndGood white and red Italian.
  83  Foundry6$$DavisTrendy bar for twenty-somethings. Burgers (good), fries (limp), pizza (which they call flat bread), salads. Some strange. Brand X soda, not Coke or Pepsi.
  84  Fresh City7$WoburnSalads, sandwiches, soups, stir-fry. Very good. Will go back to sample more.
  85  Friendly Toast, The8$KendallBreakfast-y and sandwiches and burgers all day long. Very good and not very expensive, ergo popular.
  86  Fuji8$$$Assembly SqGood sushi place in Assembly Square. Very nice interior and tables. Sushi is never cheap, though.
  87  Ginger Exchange8$InmanVery good lunch bento boxes and pad thai. They brag about their wings, too, but haven't had them yet. Good sushi rolls, too, and inexpensive at lunch. Beware brand-X (City) soda.
  88  Giulia8$$$$PorterFamous, fancy place. Everything they serve is wonderful. But consult your banker first.
  89  Gloucester House6$$GloucesterOkay fish and lobster pie. Avoid the watery and bland fish chowder. Good fries, though.
  90  Grafton Street5$$HarvardOkay brunch entrees and bar food. Very popular place due to great location, but ordinary fare.
  91  Great Wall7$BedfordGood Chinese lunch buffet. Larger than usual selection, all competently done. Just north off 128.
  92  Grendel's Den7$HarvardTraditional place a block from the square, underground and outside (in season). Burgers, sandwiches, salads, all surprisingly good.
  93  Gustazo6$$BelmontCuban restaurant in Belmont, a few doors up from Sophia's great Greek deli. Good sandwich, very flavorful sauces, but the pork was not well-trimmed.
  94  Halfway Cafe7$WatertownGreat burgers, many ways. Killer onion rings by the ton. They can be forgiven the limp french fries. Dark and crowded bar plus adjacent dining area.
  95  Harvest6$$$HarvardTrendy, well-located, for lunch or dinner. Overrated, IMHO.
  96  Harvest of India7$HarvardDecent lunch buffet at very modest price.
  97  Haveli (died)6$InmanPretty good Indian. Typical lunch buffet. Samosas, chicken tikka masala, and naan very good.
  98  Helmand, The6$$KendallGreat recommendations from friends, and very crowded, but surprisingly unexciting. Specialties are many lamb dishes, Afghani in style.
  99  Hi-Rise Bakery5$$Huron AveWide variety of breads and other baked goods, wines. Good but pricy sandwiches. Very crowded and very little seating, max about 20-24 if they're all friends. Warning: no restrooms.
  100  Hong Kong7$HarvardUsual large Chinese menu, competently made. A neighborhood fixture, been there for thirty years or more, remodeled to be airy and open. The food is pretty ordinary, though.
  101  Independent, The8$Union SquareVery good burgers, sandwiches, seafood, steaks, salads, brunch, and such. Even things like croque madame. And thirty beers on tap.
  102  India Castle6$CentralSmall Indian restaurant on Mass Ave. Good lunch buffet. Above average but undistinguished.
  103  India Pavilion8$$CentralExcellent, probably the best in the area. This restaurant has been in the same place and run by the same family for forty years.
  104  J. P. Licks7$$Harvard, Davis, Jamaica PlainIce cream parlor in Harvard Square. Great texture and flavors, good selection. Also cakes and such for parties.
  105  Jake's Seafood9$$HullOutstanding seafood. Lobster bisque, haddock, and swordfish were exceptional. A reason to drive all the way to Hull.
  106  Joe's American Bar & Grill8$$North End, Woburn, Nashua, Framingham, et al.Really good burgers, sandwiches, salads. Also fish and steaks on the menu, but haven't tried those yet.
  107  Jose's8$$Sherman St.Good, inexpensive Mexican, the best we've had locally. The usual burritos, enchiladas, chili rellenos, plus grilled items we haven't tried yet. A bit out of the way, but parking is available in a lot right next door.
  108  Just Crust Pizza7$HarvardSame place as the old Upper Crust on Brattle St. Better pizza. Still thin crust, but more flavor. Still needs work, though.
  109  Kaya (died)8$$PorterAsian fusion: Korean, Japanese, Chinese. Great lunch boxes, good sushi.
  110  Kennedy's (died)6$$HarvardReplaces First Printer on Dunster St. High tables. Decent burgers; the buffalo burger is leaner.
  111  Knickerbocker8$$$New York, East VillageWonderful old New York steak house.
  112  Koreana7$$CentralSushi, Japanese, and Korean. Nigiri sushi rather small, therefore expensive. Good bento box lunches.
  113  La Galleria 338$$North EndExcellent North End Italian on Salem Street. Great mussels, veal in vodka sauce. Will go back here.
  114  Lamole (died)6$HarvardLarge menu of Italian dishes and pizzas. Pizza to-go and deliveries. The prosciutto and parmesan pizza is killer.
  115  Le7$HarvardVietnamese pho (and other) restaurant in The Garage. Great teriyaki chicken appetizer. Good pho, many choices. The caramelized salmon is killer. Dozens of other dishes, too, which I will go back to try.
  116  Legal Seafood 9$$$Harvard, Kendall, Burlington, Copley, downtownStill my favorite seafood restaurant. Used to be cheap, but grew up, expanded, and got expensive. Large selection of fin-fish and shellfish cooked in a wide variety of ways. And one of the very few places to serve fish chowder as well as clam chowder.
  117  Legal Test Kitchen8$$SeaportA small, less formal version of Legal Seafood, down in the renovated Seaport district. Very different dishes from the fare at the parent Legal. Fish tacos only okay. Outstanding onion strings. Sadly, does not have Legal's wonderful fish chowder.
  118  Limoncello8$$North EndGreat Italian right next to Paul Revere's house. Veal, chicken, pasta, killer sauces. Highly recommended.
  119  Lizzy's Ice Cream7$HarvardGood but not great. Well, except for the Charles River Crunch, which is outstanding. Good texture, reasonable selection of flavors. Tiny place.
  120  Lobster Pool9$$RockportExcellent lobster, fried seafood, bisque. One of those places right on the water, extremely informal, order then sit, inside and outside. Parking is very limited; be persistent.
  121  Lobster Shanty8$SalemGreat rustic lobster place in the pedestrian mall area of Salem. Terrif fried fish, lobster, mac & cheese with add-ins. Outdoor, friendly.
  122  Longhorn Steakhouse7$$NashuaExactly what it says. Steaks and salads and desserts.
  123  Machu Picchu7$Union SquarePeruvian restaurant. Two venues, half a block apart. One has lunch-y meat menu, the other dinner-y seafood menu. Good meats, sauces, rice. Chicken and chorizo great. Empanadas boring.
  124  Maharajah8$HarvardVery good lunch buffet every day. The Chicken Tikka Masala, Paneer, and Curried Pakoras were great. Upstairs with a good view.
  125  Mamaleh's Deli8$$KendallSerious Jewish deli, with the usual meats, sandwiches, other goodies.
  126  Mamma Maria's8$$$$North EndWonderful Italian seafood and goodies. Appetizers and desserts were served family-style (for our large group). Lobster ravioli and steak Rossini were particular favorites.
  127  Margarita's6$$Medford/RevereOkay Mexican. In an industrial park area, so probably jammed during the week. Good fish tacos; pork tacos only okay. Salsa quite spicy. Good chips.
  128  Market in the Square (lunch buffet) (died)7$HarvardLunchtime salad bar, by the pound, dish your own into a plastic box. Good selection of cold salad items, hot dishes of several ethnicities. Take out or eat in.
  129  Mary Chung's7$$Central Sq.Good Chinese place. Dim Sum Saturday and Sunday; closed Tuesdays. A couple unique soups and dishes. Steamed buns not up to par.
  130  Menotomy Grill7$$ArlingtonGood burger and sandwich place for lunch. Haven't tried dinner. On Mass Ave in S. Arlington. Nice old building with a lot of new glass.
  131  Michael's Harborside8$$NewburyportDandy place right on the water, popular gathering spot. Excellent salads, appetizers, seared tuna. Warning: the fish chowder uses clam broth, dangerous for shellfish allergies.
  132  Midwest Grill8$$InmanBrazilian BBQ, which you would not guess from the name. Buffets of salads and hot dishes plus the guys circulating with skewers of beef, pork, chicken, lamb. Very tasty. Lunch is cheap, dinner a little pricy. Arrive hungry.
  133  Mike's Food and Spirits7$$Davis SquareHuge menu of Italian dishes, pizza, burgers, snacks. Good and not expensive. Order at the counter and then find a seat. Right in the square (which, of course, is not square), with indoor and outdoor seating.
  134  Mr. Sushi8$ArlingtonVery good, inexpensive, neighborhood sushi place. Japanese dishes, too. Many customers speaking Japanese, which is usually a good recommendation.
  135  My Place by the Sea7$$$RockportThe last place down Bearskin Neck. Pricey, but good and interesting food, and you go there for the view, anyway.
  136  Newtowne Grill7$PorterTake-out sandwiches. Good, fresh, tasty, generous. The bar side looks like kind of a dump these days.
  137  Not Your Average Joe's8$$Watertown, many othersGreat sandwiches, salads, breads. Killer for lunch. Dip the bread in the garlic oil, yum.
  138  Ole7$InmanGood if unusual Mexican. Lunch is mainly sandwiches, tacos, and salads. Hard to discover, off on a side street and with no advertising.
  139  Olivio (died)7$$$ArlingtonOld family-style Italian, white and red, on Mass Ave in Arlington. Good dishes, medium-giant portions.
  140  Orinoco6$$HarvardVenezuelan tapas and entrees. Pretty good but not wonderful. Some odd combinations, such as fish and mechadas (beef). Empanadas good; arepas bread very tough. Tasty insides, though.

  143  Otto's Pizza7$$Harvard, ArlingtonLarge thin-crust pizza by the slice or whole pie. Very good crust. A little short on the toppings and could use more parmesan for flavor.
  144  Out of the Blue7$$DavisSeafood Italian, fin fish and shellfish, red and white sauces. Loud. You'll need a reservation.
  145  Papa Razzi8$$$Concord, et al.Surprisingly good Italian fare for a chain. Salads, pasta, pizza, sandwiches. Great bread and oil munchies as starters, too.
  146  Parish Cafe8$$Boston CommonNice little cafe on Boylston St., good appetizers and salads. Have to go again to try more of the menu. Many "Best of" awards on the walls.
  147  Pasha6$$ArlingtonPretty good Turkish food, if one likes Turkish food. Large menu with many meat and veggie dishes.
  148  Passage to India6$$PorterPerfectly passable Indian across from the mall. No lunch buffet, though.
  149  Patou7$BelmontGood Thai food. Lunch specials add salad and appetizers. The service is good but the kitchen can be very slow.
  150  Paul7$$Assembly SquareSandwiches, salads, pastries, soups. In the middle of the restaurant row in the new shopping area. Don't worry about falling asleep in the movie; you won't be overstuffed.
  151  Peach Farm6$$ChinatownOkay Chinese. Rumored to be great, but not. Little place in the basement, fairly authentic.
  152  Pho & I7$SymphonyVery good Thai dishes. Large variety of Vietnamese soups, too, which we will have to go back and sample.

  154  Pho House7$$PorterNew, very nice Vietnamese and Thai place. Crispy rolls, pho, and Thai dishes all very good.
  155  Pig Tale7$$Nashua, exit 8Sandwiches of several kinds of pork BBQ. Deviled eggs starter good but pricey. The pies looked fabulous but no one had room left.

  157  Punjab7$$ArlingtonGood upscale Indian, wide variety of dishes. Some hot, some not. Good breads. Quiet atmosphere.
  158  Punjabi Dhaba5$InmanOrder-wait-sit. The Chicken Tikka Masala is pretty good; the rice, boring; the nan, dry and hard. All served on a lovely steel tray. Not going back.
  159  Rabia7$$North EndItalian seafood. The shellfish Fra Diavolo was wonderful. The fried fish sandwich was good, not great. The lobster bisque was thin, watery, to be avoided.
  160  Red House7$$$HarvardSeafood, oysters in season.
  161  Rendezvous (died)7$$$CentralSmall, focused menu. Didn't recognize anything on the wine list. What things they have, food and wine, are good. Hope that you want something that is being served today. Very attentive waitstaff. Noisy.
  162  Rockafella's7$$SalemNice warm, uncrowded place on the main street. Good burgers, soups, salads.
  163  Russell House7$$HarvardGood burger-sandwich-salad place. Super-sized portions, too big if you aren't going to doggy-bag.
  164  S&S Restaurant8$$InmanGreat brunch place, typically huge portions. French toast and sausage wonderful. Bagels and hash good.
  165  Salty Pig, The7$$Copley PlaceEverything porcine that's edible. And cheeses. Tapas style. And pizzas. Excellent pate and cambozola; porchetta weak.
  166  Sandrine's (died)8$$$$HarvardAlsatian restaurant. Small but terrific menu. Nice wine list, small but expensive. Killer pates, duck, steak. In good weather, windows open for almost-outdoor dining.
  167  Santouka7$$HarvardNoodle shop, all sorts of soups with noodles, and other dishes. Great broth with various add-ins. Beware the Japanese so-called bacon.
  168  Seaport Grille7$$GloucesterHarborside seafood dining. Thursday special lobster rolls half price, and good.
  169  Seasons 527$$BurlingtonGood salads and appetizers menu; sandwiches and entrees as yet untried. Trendy ingredients. They claim "every item less than 475 calories."
  170  Sfizi7$$$North EndSmall, fancy Italian place with unusual dishes and drinks. On a corner in the North End, with open windows in the summer.
  171  ShabuYa6$HarvardLunch buffet weekdays. Most of the dishes undistinguished, even bland. Exceptions: the kim chi is appropriately incendiary; the pork bulkogi is very flavorful.
  172  Shake Shack6$HarvardYet another burger place in Harvard Square. Not great. Okay burgers. Limp fries, greasy.
  173  Shorty's8$$Nashua, exit 6Mexican, very good. The espinaca con queso appetizer is killer; best chips and salsa in the area. Good salads, too.
  174  Sinclair, The8$$HarvardGreat and unusual Sunday brunch items, such as spicy Benedict and waffle burger. Upstairs deck in good weather.
  175  Slates7$$$Hallowell, METrendy dinner place near Augusta. Country charm, crowded, noisy. Interesting dishes.
  176  SlowBones (died)7$$BurlingtonGood BBQ beef, pork, ribs. Kind of a Formica palace, so plan to take out. Their little shopping center is extremely crowded at lunch; plan accordingly.
  177  South Street Diner8$South Station areaGreat breakfast place, all day and all night, 24/7. Sandwiches, salads, and some dinners, too. Great stuff, generous portions. Two blocks from South Station. Small, so choose your time wisely.
  178  Spice & Rice (died)7$InmanExcellent Thai lunch plates, cheap. They do a lot of catering, too.
  179  Spice Thai8$$HarvardVery nice place, down Holyoke Street. Wide variety of Thai dishes. A little crowded and noisy, but being popular is a good sign for a restaurant.
  180  Spirit Bar7$$PorterIrish bar with pretty good food. Fish and chips good. Smoked cod very strong flavor, not for the faint of heart. And french fries a little limp. Po' Boy shrimp sandwich overstuffed with shrimp, spicy, dandy.
  181  Stone Soup (died, I hope)2$IpswichUnbelievably bad. The daily special, "Tuna Melt," was not actually melted. The fries were grossly undercooked, too.
  182  Strip Ts7$WatertownGood soups and sandwiches for the lunchtime crowd. Small and frenetic, crowded from nearby industrial park. Go early.
  183  Sugar & Spice7$PorterSmall Thai place in Porter Square. Outdoor tables, too. Good variety, very tasty.
  184  Summer Shack8$$$Fresh PondFresh, varied seafood, fin-fish and shellfish. Gian lobster tank in the middle. Owned by famous chef Jasper White.

  186  Sweet Tomatoes Pizza5$Newton(By the slice) Very thin, floppy crust. Fairly indifferent sauce flavor. Ask for packets of Parmesan to add flavor.
  187  Swiss Baker, The7$AllstonSandwiches, soups, breads, quiche, Swiss pastries. Order-and-sit. Good. Have to go back to try some different items. Right on Western Avenue -- and it has a parking lot, which is important in that neighborhood.
  188  T Bones7$Manchester, NH, et al.Your basic family style burger, steak, sandwich, and chili fries kind of place. Good. And loud. Related to Cactus Jack's; seven places in NH.
  189  Takemura7$$HarvardVery good sushi, standard selection and special rolls. Underground where the Blue Parrot used to be years ago. Cozy, quiet.
  190  Tamarind Bay (died)6$$$HarvardGood Indian, tandoor and curries. Clientele mainly Indian, which is a good sign. Everything on the menu a la carte, even rice. Tasty sauces, but the Naan was flat and dry. Weekdays lunch buffet.
  191  Tanjore6$HarvardOkay lunch buffet. Tikka Masala slightly spicy, which is good. Chicken curry less so. Saag Paneer good. Naan thin and dry.
  192  Tasty Burger8$HarvardNew burger joint in Harvard Square. Counters upstairs; tables and service downstairs. Good burgers and hot dogs. Very good fries and really exceptional onions strings.
  193  Tatte6$Harvard, KendallTiny eat-in or take-out bakery. Sandwiches, pastries, salads. Very popular. Two locations.
  194  Tavern on the Square7$Porter, Central, Burlington, othersSalad menu recently downgraded. Burgers and munchies rumored to be great. Will have to go back to test some more.
  195  Texas Roadhouse8$EverettSteaks (good), burgers (very good), salads (good), ribs (outstanding). Partly Willie's. Peanuts on the table and the floor. Dinner daily; lunch weekends.
  196  Thelonious Monkfish8$$CentralHuge variety of sushi, rolls, and sashimi, and many Japanese and Chinese dishes. Crowded, line out the door. Noisy. Very tasty food. Must go back.
  197  Tides8$$NahantExcellent seafood place, right on the beach in Nahant. Inside and outside tables.
  198  Tommy Doyle's7$Harvard (Kendall died)Great burgers, fish and chips. They do steak fries, but if you get them extra crispy they're great.
  199  Toscanini's Ice Cream8$$Main St, CambridgeSuper smooth and creamy ice cream. Yum. Large selection of flavors and combinations that you won't see elsewhere.
  200  Toscano7$$$HarvardVery nice, very upscale. Everything presented well. Wonderful entrees, best beef I've had in a long time. Pricey and some portions rather small.
  201  Tryst6$$$ArlingtonTrendy and varied menu. Should be better than I thought it was. Will try again.
  202  Ugly Mug Diner8$$SalemGreat breakfast sort of place. Many traditional and elaborate brunch-y, comfort dishes.
  203  Upper Crust Pizza (moved)7$Charles St.Good thin-crust pizza. Tasty crust and sauce. Needs more cheese.
  204  Upstairs on the Square (died)4$$$HarvardOver-priced and under-wonderful. Lobster roll tiny, bland, way expensive. Cajun rings had no Cajun flavor at all. Salads okay.
  205  Victor's Diner8$WatertownGreek diner with typical big menu. Huge and dandy Greek salad. Good sandwiches and soup.
  206  Victoria Station8$$SalemOne survivor from a large chain. Now a seafood place on Salem harbor. Dandy for lunch.
  207  Victoria Station & Vic's Boathouse7$$SalemThe last survivor of the Victoria Station chain. Very good lunches. Sandwiches, burgers, salads. Salad bar (remember those?). Outdoor tables, too, with great view of the harbor.
  208  Village Tavern5$SalemBurgers, bbq, bar food of all kinds. A bar, complete with weekday barflies, that serves food. Menu looks great, but the results were not so.
  209  Wagamama (moved)8$$Harvard (moved to somewhere)Japanese, sushi, Korean fusion. Really good soups and noodle plates with meats or fish. Big menu. Long table fun place, student, noisy.
  210  Wasabi8$$$PorterGood, new sushi place. Standard fare. Very small, family sort of place.
  211  Which Wich8$Assembly SqChoose your sandwich from large selection of components. Great chain that we first encountered in Austin. Tiny seating capacity.
  212  Yenching (died)7$HarvardWay better than average Chinese fare. Been in the same location for 35 years, which is a high recommendation in itself. Unlike many restaurants, the little peppers on the menu really mean spicy.
  213  Yoki7$$CentralVery good sushi, and not overly expensive. Good nigiri and simple rolls. Have to go back to try the custom maki.
  214  YouYou9$$Nashua, exit 6Our default restaurant in Nashua. Japanese, Korean, sushi, all terrific. Katsus, Korean rice bowls, noodle soups, seared tuna, scallops, steak, you name it.
  215  Za6$ArlingtonPersonal pizzas with long list of standard toppings plus a few really unusual ones. Okay.
  216  Zocalo5$South EndMediocre Mexican, sad to say. The tortillas were rubbery, breakfast burrito bland, salsa different but still bland. The guacamole was very good, however.
  217  Zoe's9$HarvardExcellent diner. Big menu: breakfasts, sandwiches, Greek salads and entrees. Can't go wrong. Popular. Expanding to meet the demand.
