More birthday swag|
I'll pipe in and agree that Rebecca's is overpriced, mediocre, cafeteria style. Do you know if there's a Rebecca's location in the building aside from the closet-size one in the Winter Garden? A couple of times I've gone there in the hopes of getting something quick and they basically have had much emptyness where stuff used to be. Must be because I've always wandered in after the morning rush or after the lunch rush.
I've heard good stuff about Parish. (Maybe plan your lunch to start earlyish or latish to avoid too much crowd). I haven't been to the Cottonwood at that location, but I used to go to the one in Porter Square (which isn't there anymore), which I thought was good.
yeah, there's a bigger Rebecca's all the way on the other side of the building past the 500 Boylston entrance, near Skipjack's.
Cottonwood is... okay. mediocre, but in a sort-of-good-if-you're-in-the-mood way. definitely overpriced for dinner, but reasonable for lunch given the Back Bay location.
