Monday lunch near Eliot Hotel?

I know there are tons of restaurants nearby, but somehow I'm drawing a blank!

A friend is visiting from San Francisco, and is staying at the Eliot. I'm meeting her for lunch on Monday - 100% chance of rain predicted. So my requirements are:

1) not too far a walk so we won't be drenched (maybe 5 mins tops)
2) something that's more East coast-sy, that she might not encounter as often in SF
3) like to keep it under $20pp

Initially I thought 94 Mass Ave would be great, but then realizes it's not open for lunch. I checked Towne's menu but it's a bit too pricey.

I suppose we can go to Sel de la Terre, but the few times I've eaten there (plus the Natick and Aquarium branches), I thought the food was only so-so. But those were either dinners or brunches, never had lunch there.

Where else would you recommend?

There's a chance we might go to the MFA, has anyone eaten at the new Courtyard Cafe in the Americas wing?
