This quirky space used to be a bank (still has a giant walk-in safe people book for small parties.) It is just off Harvard Square, good food, great drinks, great staff, and amazingly neither over-crowded nor over-noisy at lunch time. In Harvard Square it is rare to find a place for lunch where you and your guests can hear each other talk. I really like the staff, especially Jen and (behind the bar) Roosevelt. The French dip, lobster roll, and fried chicken with waffles are all delicious. On the drinks menu, they have some fun recipes going back to the 19th century. I recommend the Correspondent. In between lunch and dinner on weekdays there is a pub menu that includes something awesome called "Lobster sliders," basically 3 tiny burger buns w lobster-roll stuff inside. It is an ideal place for a business or friends lunch in Harvard Square; I have also been there solo and been treated well at the bar. My only caveat is that for weekend brunch they fill up fast. If you don't have a reservation, good luck getting in!
