20-somethings looking for GOOD FOOD (that is more important to us than the liquor) at a place that can take reservations for Friday for 15 people in Harvard Square. Called Cambridge One and they don't do reservations. I think Z Square (upstairs on the square) will be too expensive. Avg entree should be $12-$20. I don't want any of the mediocre Thai places that H Sq has to offer, nor do I want Indian.
Is there anything at all in Harvard Sq that can satisfy? I live in the West Village of Manhattan, so trying to coordinate a restaurant in a (in my opinion) pretty lackluster food area like Harvard Sq is more than a little frustrating! (don't even get me started on the lack of delivery in the Harvard area; and no, I don't like the concept or the incarnation of 'foodler' !)
Thanks for your help.
