Where to Eat Weekday Lunch by North Station

View as Map

Welcome to the inaugural edition of Mid-Day Meal Maps, an ongoing mapping project dedicated to finding the best weekday lunch options — as determined be readers — in various office-heavy neighborhoods in the Boston area.
mid%20day%20meal%20maps%20north%20station.jpg

Yesterday, a reader asked for lunch suggestions near her new office by North Station, and other readers obliged. Those suggestions are mapped here — and the map will be updated periodically to include new suggestions, which you can send in by leaving a comment below or emailing the tipline. (Please note that the numbers are not rankings; the items are listed in rough geographical order from North to South.) Also, let us know what other neighborhoods you'd like to see featured.
