I'm coming up from NYC for my birthday weekend in a couple of weeks to visit some friends. I'm in my mid-20s and looking for places in the cambridge, back bay, somersville and other hip/fun areas of the city to eat out in. i'm on a budget this weekend, as well as my friends, since i'm in grad school, so nothing expensive. i like lots of different foods, but i'm sticking to a healthy diet these days (does not mean vegitarian) and trying to limit my carb intake, so nothin fried or chowder! what are some yummy places i can hit up? i'd prefer one place be japanese (maybe with lunch specials) and they all don't have to be service types--i can do nice salad bars and "food courts" if they're good.
Thanks in advance
