If you’re in a meat-and-potatoes mood and want an obscene amount of food, larochelle recommends the restaurant at the Basque Cultural Center. A Sunday dinner special includes lamb stew AND prime rib, along with salad, cubed fried potatoes, sautéed seasonal veggies, and ice cream, all for $18.95. The prime rib is beautifully rare, and the lamb stew is so good it’s worth mopping up with the excellent bread. Robert Lauriston has had some very good, interesting, and inexpensive Basque wines from their wine list, but if that’s not your thing, corkage is a very reasonable $7.
