Doesn't really exist. The Butcherie in Brookline is the closest.

Going through Boston tomorrow afternoon, would like to spend around 6 hours in the city center.  Would like to find a place to park for free (preferably near Brookline) and take train downtown.  Where can we do that?  Thanks.

Kosher Wok, formerly known as Taam China, is best for lunch. For breakfast not many options. Kupels for bagels — self serve bakery with place to sit , not really a restaurant.  J.P. licks has bagels and muffins.  The one in JP has waffles and quiche but also not really a restaurant — self serve. 
Milk street cafe great for breakfast or lunch but closed weekends.

CP Newton had pointsbreKs this quarter. Can daven In Newton or in Brighton.

CP Newton is certainly at the lower-end of CPs if that is a factor. When I was there, we davened in Brookline since that's where food was, so it was easier.

We place mashgichim there for Yom Tov. It's pretty nice. nothing extraordinary. There are balconies for about half the rooms, though.
