Boston Weekend Lunch Suggestions Needed

Thanks to information provided by this forum, I have booked tickets for a Sat. afternoon viewing of the Sargent Exhibit at MFA.

Now, any suggestions on lunch options if we prefer not to eat at the museum? Is this too far to walk from Newbury Street? If yes, is there an easy subway connection between the two?

Searching www but don't know how to put in location other than downtown which pulls up multi F-Hall but little else. oh-- $ range inexpensive/modest.

Thanks, Marion

Try the Great Atlantic Seafood Company. It's on an avenue that runs parallel to Newbury (don't remember the street name). Food is fantastic - great selection - not sure of the cost.

Marion,
You can try any restaurant on Huntington ave. near Symphony Hall. There's an Uno's and some Asian restaurants. There's a cafeteria in the basement of the MFA if the upstairs (expensive) restaurant is not to your taste. You can also try places at the Prudential or Copley Place if you then take the E train to the MFA. You should also look into the shuttle buses that run from around Copley Sq. to the MFA for these big exhibits. That gives you better access from the above mentioned places.
There's a new place at the Prudential that sounds fun, like a french market/cafe/cafeteria. Good luck. Write me if you need more help/ideas.

There's a T stop right outside the museum. If you take the subway toward Lechmere (downtown) and hop off at Copley (four stops), you'll be on the corner of Boylston & Dartmouth. One block over is (parallel to Boylston)Newbury. We love Stephanie's on the corner of Newbury & Exeter (one block over from Dartmouth). Another spot we really enjoy for lunch is the Parish Cafe, a few steps from the Boston Common on Boylston (the next stop, Arlington, is a few steps away). Terrific, imaginative, sandwiches all created and contributed (to the menu) by top chefs in Boston. Both of these places have nice outdoor seating. But, there are lots of appealing places all along Newbury Street. Note that at the MFA, there's a cafeteria on the lower level, a cafe on the main floor, and a restaurant upstairs. The food is surprising good (especially in the restaurant, where they take reservations and you would be advised to make them)and not outrageously priced. The new restaurant at the Prudential Center is called Marche Movenpick (Swiss). Haven't tried this one yet, but their places in Toronto and Montreal are fabulous. This is a unique experience and the food is wonderful. The Atlantic Fish Company is at 777 Boylston (between Exeter & Fairfield), but I'm just providing the address as we haven't tried this place and it may or not be the same place the poster above mentioned.

We have had lunches and dinners at the Museum, in the cafe and in the restaurant; Donna's right: they are surprisingly good and not expensive.

You'll not be far from the South End which is full of new trendy restaurants; I'm not sure if lunch is offered but one of our favorites is Metropolis on Tremont Street.

If you like Thai food, there is a very good thai restaurant on Mass. Ave., across the street from the Christian Science Center. It is called Bangkok Cuisine at 177 A Mass. Ave. It doesn't look like much, but it's very good. Before BSO concerts at Symphony Hall, it's packed. It's also not expensive.
