I was on Boylston Street last week, and wanted an early quick lunch. As I walked towards the BPL, I remembered that they had recently opened two eating spots. I didn't need anything as substantial as the buffet at Novel, so I had two salads at the Map Room. One very tasty potato salad w/ a wholegrain mustard dressing, and then a nice red and yellow tomato salad in a balsamic dressing. The sandwiches looked quite good too, and the surroundings are great!
Novel does an afternoon tea, which is now on my list to try.
