Help me find the best place for clam chowder for lunch in Boston/Cambridge/Somerville tomorrow, given my conditions!
I am visiting Boston and will be working remotely at my friend's place tomorrow in Cambridge. I'd like to eat clam chowder for lunch, as I have to leave straight for the airport* to head back to Chicago after work.
- Convenient walk from my current location (Western Ave & Memorial Drive
in Cambridge) or convenient by the Red Line. I have no objection to going downtown: in fact, perhaps a very slight preference as I haven't had the chance to go downtown this trip and might like to for nostalgia's sake.
- Ability for me to pick up the food to eat at home.
- Cost: less than $15 and even better less than $10 for a single lunch portion.
- Chains are totally OK, but not
one present in Chicago or Los Angeles. (I live in one, and visit the other frequently -- don't want to do something I can get there.)
I realize that these constraints mean I'm not getting the best quality or best value in the city, and I'm fine with that. I'd just like to get the best given my parameters. Thanks!
*Bonus Question: I am taking the Red to Silver lines tomorrow and would like to get to Logan by 6:15 pm. When would you get on the T at Central Square?
