Good restaurants in Framingham/Natick?
I am looking for at least one restaurant in the MetroWest area where I can bring my parents when they visit. Someplace where the servings are large enough for an adult! (No Mexican, or Asian cuisine, but Indian or conventional "American" is fine!)
A long-time family favorite is La Cantina in Framimgham. It is a family-run Italian restaurant which has been there for at least over 30 years (my lifetime!) The servings are generous and the entrees are reasonably priced. In fact, I went there for dinner tonite and there was a line out the door by 7pm. There's a good reason for its popularity - great food!
Another thought - Naked Fish in Natick (same location as the old Ground Round - there's also another one in Westboro) is a decent restaurant with a fun Latin theme (Cuban drinks, salsa music). Grilled fish was very good, but the mojitos left a little to be desired (they were made with ginger ale - huh??). But for the suburbs, it is something a little different with a lively atmosphere.
Oh come on!
There's Hiro Sushi on Rt 135 in Natick, which is great authentic Japanese (full menu) and sushi.
Dah Mee on Washington St in Natick does a good job with Korean.
Go Fish on Rt 9, also in Natick is a truly wonderful seafood restaurant-- no need to ever go to Legal or Naked Fish with this place right here.
Joan and Ed's is a pretty good deli.
Cafe Bela in downtown Framingham is a very casual, but unique and delicious Brazilian place.
Tennessee's BBQ is pretty good, and Gold Star is a fine Indian establishment. For Chinese, Imperial China is good.
