Downtown Lunch Spots

Take a break from your holiday shopping and enjoy a quick bite at these new and old favorites to satisfy your mid-day cravings.

Bonapita (49 Franklin St., 857-350-4606,
bonapita.com, pictured): A relative newcomer, Bonapita boasts healthy Mediterranean fare—nothing on the menu is fried or served with cheese. Enjoy a variety of meat or veggie options—black bean and beet patties, anyone?—stuffed in a warm pita, served on a platter with rice and roasted vegetables or tossed as a salad.

Inboston Modern Korean Kitchen
(85 Bedford St., 617-426-0785, inbk-kitchen.com): Another 2014 addition, this Asian eatery serves the other KFC: Korean fried chicken, a twice-fried delicacy served in glazed, spicy or soy versions. 

(101 Arch St., 617-542-0392, chacarero.com): This is one of the only places in the city to find the namesake chacarero, a Chilean sandwich served on a fresh-baked round bun filled with tomato, Muenster cheese, green beans, a spicy avocado spread and your choice of chicken or beef (or vegetarian, if you like). Starting as a pushcart, this restaurant is the result of the popularity of this singular sandwich.

Pedro’s Tacos (55 Bromfield St., 617-482-8822, pedrostacos.com): The first non-Californian branch of this legendary purveyor of fish tacos opened in 2012. A favorite of West Coast surfers for nearly 30 years, it now enjoys a following right here in Beantown.

Sam Lagrassa’s (44 Province St., 617-357-NUM1, samlagrassas.com): A mainstay since 1968, Sam LaGrassa’s boasts having the “world’s no. 1 sandwiches.” Despite the bombastic nature of the statement, it’s hard to argue. Favorite creations include the famous pastrami served on rye bread, the grilled jumbo Reuben and the triple club overflowing with oven-roasted turkey, honey glazed ham, Black Angus roast beef and apple-smoked bacon.
