There aren’t a lot of fast-casual places in the South End, owing to the neighborhood’s lack of 9-5 khaki-wearers. Anoush’ella is a pretty good one to have, though. It’s a bright, Mediterranean place with some good flatbreads, like the sabich that comes with eggplant and hummus. We really like for brunch, too, when just about everything on the menu is under $10.
