Need A Recommendation Boston/cambridge

Recommended Posts

My hubby and I want to spend the day walking around Harvard SQ or the Newbury Street area tomorrow and I'm wondering if anyone has any suggestions for dinner.

Legal Seafoods is great, but I want something different. I'm really open to any kind of food- can't do gluten (obviously) or soy. Somewhere funky with atmosphere would be cool but I'm game.

I've heard that Fire and Ice in Harvard Square is an option. You choose your own veggies, meat, sauce and it all gets cooked. Apparently, there is a special area in the back where they can cook the food for those with various food allergy concerns. I haven't been there myself, so I can't speak from personal experience, but I had noted it down for a possible visit in the future.

I did a quick search here and came up with this:

I'm not from Baaaaastan, so I can't recommend anything. Have fun :) (I don't think they have trampolines there - mimes maybe :o

Hi Mtndog -- did you ever find a restaurant in Harvard Square or Newbery Street? If so, how was the experience? I'm always looking for new places to try in the Boston area. Thanks.

I have eaten at the Fire and Ice in both Harvard Square and Providence Place Mall.

I had success at both places. YOu just have to ask the guys/gals behind the grill to bring your food in back to cook up in a separate pan (once it is done they will bring it out front to you). Before going I emailed the corporate office and received a kind reply to do this and to ask your server which sauces are gluten-free. You can call the harvard location and talk to the manager just to feel better about it (I know I do even if people tell me a place is safe to eat!). Also there is The Elephant Walk in Cambridge and Boston that has a gluten-free menu (you can view it online), but they are pretty expensive...

Fire and Ice is awesome. I have eaten there 3 times with no problems. Ask the hostess for a list of their sauces with allergens listed. It will tell you which ones are safe. One time a sauce I wanted was not out that day, and they brought it for me from the kitchen. Just have them take your meal and cook it in the back in a clean pan. Also if you go to Elephant Walk, you need to call the day before to let them know you are coming and want gluten free. They serve Cambodian and French food. I have not been yet. If you go, let me know. I always go to Fire and Ice on Sunday morning. Then, you can get omelets to as part of the Brunch.

I believe Stephanies on Newbury Street has some gluten-free items. I've also eaten at Grill 23 and Capitol Grill without any problems. Turner Fisheries as well. PF Changs. I do fairly well when I'm in Boston. And I've never called elephant Walk ahead of time and never had any problems.

richard- You're always looking out for me! You're a good man! My hubby surprised me and called ahead and talked to the owner at Casa Romero. Mexican on one of the alleys off Gloucester between Newbury and Comm Ave. FANTASTIC. It's true Mexican cuisine so there isn't much flour anyway. Mostly corn. I had pulled chicken flautas, homemade chips, salsa and guacamole (the chips are fried in their own fryer so they are safe- no gluten) and for dinner I had the chicken enchiladas with verde sauce. DELICIOUS!!!! And their Grand margaritas taste like real margaritas. I was too full for dessert 9and I'm NEVER too full for dessert.

Food and service were excellent and Senor Romero is very very sweet!
