A friend has popped into town and wants to get lunch. She's looking to spend the day doing all the Boston-y things, like walking part of the freedom trail, meandering about the commons, the public garden, the Charles, etc. For lunch, she would like to eat somewhere with a great view or something in/near a Boston landmark. Gotta tell you, I'm stumped. Late night drinks or dinner, I have a million ideas. Lunch, not so much. Ideally, it wouldn't be too pricey, or too hard to get to on the T.
I thought maybe Wagamama's, since it's in Faneuil, but she doesn't want Asian food. Is there anywhere else worth eating in/around Faneuil these days? Or maybe one of the pubs near Gov't Center (Green Dragon, or something?)....
The only other idea I had was the North End... maybe Neptune? The North End is pretty Boston-y, right? Are there other places in the NE open for lunch? And does Neptune get slammed for lunch? Are there certain times that are better than others to avoid a rush?
Any other bright ideas from the collective brain trust?
