Tried pizza at Campo di Fiori (sp?) in Harvard Sq. and decided their sandwiches are the way to go. Pizza and sandwiches are the same price ($5) and you get a few squares of the pizza, but it just didn't seem like a good deal. The crust is almost like a cracker, I thought I was supposed to have proscuitto w/ the potato and rosemary but it was ham (maybe I read it wrong) and there was little cheese and next to no oil on the slices. Good if you're watching your weight I guess. I will go back for one of their amazing sandwiches tho.
Got the fish sandwich w/ fries and cole slaw at the Linwood in the Fenway for $7.95 which was very good. They serve it with horseradish mayo which is a little more interesting. Fries are good and slaw is light on the dressing. Fried catfish finger roll up was the other dish and it was a huge burrito style sandwich. Catfish didn't make it all the way across the roll up but for $9.95 w/ fries and slaw, not a bad deal.
You may have read in the Calendar that South St. Diner is celebrating their anniv. so a friend and I went Fri. nite for the $10 special. You get a choice of soup or salad; boiled lobster, steak or prime rib; veggie and pot; coffee or soda and a hot fudge sundae. The main courses were a bit of a drag, prime rib looked like the sole of a shoe and the steak gave me a workout trying to cut it, but the rest was okay. It ended on a good note with the sundae and you can't complain too much for $10.
Tried Mass Ave. Cafe or whatever that place close to the Plough calls itself for a quick omelette. Home fries were fair at best but the bacon/cheese omelette was cooked just right ($5.50). One of those places where the grease smell sticks on your clothes tho.
