Sunday late lunch for Dad on a business trip

lisaonthecape | Jun 11, 2013 12:49 PM

Hello, Boston 'Hounds,
I haven't lived in Boston since grad school (over 25 years now) and don't spend nearly as much time as I'd like in Boston, since my husband commutes there from Cape Cod during the week, and the last thing he wants to do on a weekend is head back into town. DH has a business trip with a Sunday evening departure from Logan, and since he has to be traveling on Father's Day, we thought a late lunch before his trip would be good. I'm looking for some ideas, with the following constraints:

--We'd like a late lunch, not brunch;
--We are a party of four: DH and me plus two older teens;
--DH doesn't like seafood. I would not call the teens adventurous eaters, but not overly picky either;
--We like authentic Italian, having travelled extensively throughout Italy. No red sauce Italian-American, please. (I hate paying for a meal when the kids tell me that mine is much better.)
--We would be open to various Asian cuisines.

Years ago (before kids) DH and I used to like Hamersleys, No. 9 Park, and Lumiere . More recently, we have been to Sportello (o.k., not great) and Erbaluce (pretty good; would like to return when we aren't rushing out to a show).

Any ideas for a late Sunday lunch for Dad? Thanks.
