Dinner near Charles/MGH?

$35-40 pp works. No on in the party drinks, so wine and bar not an issue. Service needs to be comfortable with dog and blind customer. Ethnic is great. Walking is fine, so 20 minutes in any direction. We thought about Kendall Square but she'll have already been on the bus for 3 hours and navigated the city solo so closer is better. The point is to relax together over comforting, food.

$30 pp works. Nourishing, delicious works. Ethnic is fine. No one in our party drinks, so wine list isn't an issue. Service that won't be thrown by a dog and a blind customer.

Apple Picking Near Boston NOT Like Disney?

Somewhere in between near and far is Old Frog Pond Farm, tucked under 495 in Harvard and worlds away from anywhere. Small, organic, with to-die-for raspberries and small, tasty heirloom apples. I've never picked where there were so many birds and butterflies. Also art installations along the trail around the pond. "Just leave me here," a little boy I passed was saying,"This place is perfect."

Where would you recommend for a comfy dinner with lots of conversation, walking distance from Charles/MGH? My friend, who travels with her seeing eye dog, is staying at the Liberty hotel. We've gone to Artu twice and would like to try somewhere else.

Where to stop before/after Tappanzee Bridge

shoot, I never thought to look under "tri-state," just "mid-atlantic." What a dim bulb. Thanks.

Where to stop before/after Tappanzee Bridge

O you folks are wonderful. I am sooo much more optimistic now. When I do the trip alone, I go out to Poughkeepsie and have a wonderful dinner with my sister, then make the next leg the next day. But husband is from the drive-til-we-get-there school. Your suggestions help.

My family is driving from Cambridge MA to Lancaster PA (again) on Saturday Feb 16: about 8 hours trapped in a car together. We need somewhere to eat lunch. Husband requires easy-on, easy-off, fast service. Wife and teenage daughter need clean food preferably involving more veggies and less grease. We come down 684 to the Saw Mill Pkwy, to 87 tp 287 south.

We used to stop at a huge dinner (Blue Ribbon?) but have gotten sick of it. Any suggestions appreciated. Does Ginger and Spice in Mahwah NJ fit the bill?
