Sweet Rice is a casual place on Centre Street with both a Thai and sushi menu. We prefer the Thai stuff (the pineapple fried rice is particularly good) but the sushi is more than adequate for a neighborhood destination, even if it isn't quite the type of fish that's topped with tropical flowers and a specialty ingredient you can't even find in stores, let alone afford to regularly buy. It gets busy on the weekend, but tables turn over quickly.

Ittoku is a Porter Square izakaya inside a windowless mall, and it’s better and way more fun than you expect a restaurant in a windowless mall to be.
