Friday for lunch a friend and I stopped at Spirit, just N of Porter Sq for lunch. They've redone the old Porter Bbq place a la Temple Bar - lots of dark wood and spiffy red paint. A whole list of $5.95 lunch specials. My friend liked her bbq chicken samdwich. I was taken in by the nice waitress' assurances that the chef could make me a veggie cubano with grilled veggies. I got a cheese sandwich w/ lettuce & tomatoes, not even pressed. Luckily the onion rings were tasty. I'll probably try again with the fish and chips.
Sat pm we tried Red Sauce, because our daughter wanted mac and cheese, and it was too late to get to Zon's. The chopped salad was very good, but their pizza is very skimpy on the toppings (we had roasted pepper & portobello). Not that we had high expectations, anyway.
Tonight we tried Oscar's Pinata's in Tewksbury. Pretty mediocre all around, and weak margaritas. Never mind.
