As a resident of Beacon Hill for nearly 8 years, I cannot describe my frustration with the lack of quality food on Cambridge Street.
Pierrot and Antonios are my go-to's, but the vacancies on Cambridge Street are just depressing. Sure, the Shang is being replaced with Poe's Tip Tap Room (eventually), and Phoenicia is being replaced with a Fin's (not that we need another sushi place), currently, the vacant spots are massive. Spotted Apron. Gone for years. Villa Mexico - end of year. White Hen and The Federal are gone. And is it just me, or are the Au Bon Pain and Finagle Bagel sub par compared to other locations?
Some good news - Harvard Gardens recently re-did their menu and it's better.
Maybe I'm just a complainer, but I'm just frustrated. I'd LOVE to see some wonderful take-away/eat in type of places, international cuisine other than sushi, wonderful healthy vegetarian/salad options.
What do you guys think? What's the problem with Cambridge Street and what can be done about it? What would you like to see on Cambridge Street?
