I'm a Miami Chowhounder who went to school at BU but I haven't lived in the Boston area since 2002. I'm coming up for 3 days with my dad and this Friday will be reuniting with some of my BU Film School friends to rock the karaoke mic at Courtside in East Cambridge (near Lechmere).
My eyes are already tired after pouring over all the Cambridge threads on this board so I figured I would post instead.
Looking for an early-ish Friday night dinner for 3 people before we go a-karaoke-ing in the general area. Would love to walk after to Courtside, but totally fine to cab it from other parts of Cambridge too. Looking for a quality casual dinner and drinks, not too expensive but doesn't have to be super cheap eats either - just good and tasty, hopefully fresh and local-ish. Japanese, Vietnamese, American, Italian, Fusion, what have you - just not anything strictly Seafood. Anyone have any Cambridge rec's that I may not have seen already? I know there are tons of Cambridge threads already and I really have read most of them, but haven't really seen anything that fits the bill yet in terms of the more East Cambridge area or within walking distance to that side.
Would love some help as a former Bostonian during my epic return :)
