Just a few blocks east of the downtown train station, a strip of restaurants and cafes line Shrewsbury Street. Among them are the new Italian VIA, 89 Shrewsbury St. (tel. 508/754-4842; www.viaitaliantable.com), and a handsome steakhouse, 111 Chop House, 111 Shrewsbury St. (tel. 508/799-4111; www.111chophouse.com). Both are run by the same group behind Sole Proprietor.
