With its nice shaded patio, Lulu’s may be the most pleasant restaurant in a part of Allston where red Solo cups usually litter the sidewalks. If you haven’t been here since graduation, know that they now have a bocce court in addition to a menu of comfort foods that could cure any hangover. Order the White Trash Hash or the short rib mac & cheese, toss a few bocce balls outside, and reminisce about all the nearby bars that once confiscated your fake ID.

Trillium is a brewery in the Seaport. The line out the door will be full of people coming for the beer, but the food is actually really good, too.
