$1 Oysters and $2 Grilled Cheese at Dante (Cambridge, MA)

Having graduated from a lowly paid graduate student to a still-lowly-paid postdoc, I'm always on the hunt for cheap food! Cambridge is not known for that, but you can still eat cheaply with a view of the Charles River to boot. How? Head to Dante at the Royal Sonesta hotel on Tuesday early evenings.

See, Dante serves $1 oysters everyday from 4-6pm. I went with a friend once and splurged on some Moon Shoal oysters. The oysters here are fresh and cleaned properly.

If that's not enough, on Tuesdays, Dante also offers $2 grilled cheese in the bar and lounge area.
They serve one type each Tuesday, and the time I went we had grilled cheese filled with broccolini. the sandwich isn't big, but it's good for $2!

Sitting at the bar doesn't give you a full on view of the Charles River, but you can still see it! So here's the game plan, go to Dante on Tuesday right after work, order up some $1 oysters before 6pm. When you finish that, grab some $2 grilled cheese, perhaps with a beer to accompany it.
