I'm at a law firm this summer in the University Ave complex that houses the Four Seasons. Part of the fun of being a summer associate is that there is a $25/person lunch budget for attorneys to take the summers out to lunch. So far I've had an amazing sushi lunch that was definetely over $25/person, and a lunch at St. Michael's Alley (summary: pretty good food, but really poor service (as in slow and unhelpful and with attitude), and overall not worth returning).
I realize there are various posts on the board that could be good for lunch spots, but perhaps there are hounds who work nearby who can suggest options. The closer it is, the more likely I'll be able to swing lunch there. I would love to go to Mountain View for ramen and indian, but it's probably just not feasible. Going up and down University Ave during lunch time is seriously trafficky, but likely to be necessary.
So far, I've seen promising posts for Fish Market, Cafe Brioche, Bistro Elan, Zibbibo (mixed), Ewia, Hunan Garden (old post), Krung Thai, and Pho VI Hoa.
How far is Amber India? I would *love* to go there.
Any other recs I should look into? I'd really appreciate even just a sole name of a restaurant, which I am then happy to hunt down for additional information. Thanks very much!
