Cafe Marliave serves a good meal in a unique setting. It is on Bosworth St, right off Tremont St. For a good burger, I have always liked U Burger which is a local chain but they a lot of variations and it is right across from the common.

Lunch or dinner? Casual or more upscale?

No. 9 Park is nice. For a casual lunch, Sam LaGrassa's is good but closed Sat & Sun.

You can walk to The North End from the Boston Common, plenty of places to eat there.

All of Boston is "near the Boston Common."

Why do you need to be "near Boston Common", if I may ask? Just because your hotel might be on the Common, you shouldn't limit yourself to staying in that one area. Boston is a small city with good Public Transit, Taxis, and easy to walk.

However, I will absolutely second the Marliave, as mentioned above. Great food, inventive cocktails and a nice Old Boston atmosphere. It's one of my favorite restaurants.

Also Chinatown is not far from Boston Common. Not to mention Charles Street and the restaurants there.

Which part of the Common would be more helpful to know. It's pretty big.
