A friend is having some appointments at Dana Farber and wants to meet for lunch when she is done. She travels from Western Mass, so I don't want to take her too far out of her way, but we both want some decent food. Her route, without lunch, would be Brookline Ave to Route 9 to Framingham where she gets on the Pike. I live in East Somerville but am willing to go most anywhere. I think under the circumstances, reliable parking is a requirement.
I am totally drawing a blank. Route 9 is a culinary wasteland, but maybe I have forgotten a restaurant that isn't more than 10-15 minutes off her route? Is Jo-Jo Taipei still good? What other thoughts might you have for me? I will be treating and would love to keep it under $40, plus tip.
Lunch is the Wednesday, so I am working on a deadline. Thank you in advance.
