Moody Street has pretty much everything, so it's no surprise you can find home-cooked Vegan food. It's a small restaurant. You grab a plate and serve yourself. Options include dishes such as rice, barley with squash, French lentils, beans and squash, broccoli and kale, and...More

My husband and I ate a meal from Masao's Kitchen on a recent trip to Boston. It was such a good experience, we decided to start eating a macrobiotic diet at home. If Masao's was closer we would eat there every week.
