Just had an uninspiring lunch today, and realized how blah I find food lately. I've gone through a hard past few months for many reasons and lost 20 pounds out of becoming uninterested in food, so I thought I'd hit Chowhound and ask for suggestions of places I should go to try to jumpstart my appetite. I am also sick of my own cooking (will be looking into taking cooking classes).
I used to love food, and some of the restaurants I've liked include Toraya (though I don't eat sushi), Campania, the fries at Sel de la Terre, the cod at Big Fresh in Natick, and I still miss Viet's Cafe.
Someplace within driving distance of Arllington, Lexington and friendly to solo diners would be great. I'm looking for simply prepared, not spicy, cheese-less food, not a fussy atmosphere. A place that serves great (cooked) fish would be a plus, but at this point I'd take a well-made sandwich.
