West of Boston... Concord.. Anything at all New?
All - Best to you all.
I'm trying to figure out this whole editing thing.....
We're looking for reports on any hounding suggestions re: the west of Boston.
We live in the Badlands.
Could be Lincoln, Bedford, and perhaps Concord.
There must be something out there.
We Route ourselves to Arlington for interesting Chow, but there must be something local.
Turf Fields anyone?
I don't think there's anything new (wouldn't that be a shock?), but someone posted recently about how surprisingly good Dalya's in Bedford was. I haven't been yet, but their menu looks good.
The two times I've been to Bullfinch's in Sudbury, once for brunch and once for dinner, have been good, that is, better than expected for the suburbs.
I've been to Dalya's numerous times over the years and have never been disappointed, even if rarely wowed. It's a solid place.
Lincoln has no restaurants, save a breakfast and lunch spot in the "mall."
The best food I've eaten in Concord was a mocha chip cone from Brigham's (with jimmies). Everything else I've eaten in Concord has sucked.
I want to amend my previous statement. I've enjoyed most of the sandwiches, and many of the items I've purchased out of the case, from Verill Farms in Concord. Also, I've intended to try the Concord Cheese Shop, but have never found them open! But neither of these places are restaurants; both are take-out counters.
re: three of us
I f you say you often go to Arlington for dinner then I would strongly suggest that you try The Catch restaurant on Church St. in Winchester. Read some of the postings on this board and I think you find that this place gets overall great reviews. I believe it is one of the best resaturants in the entire Boston area.
Concord is not strong on the food scene. Serafina's is a bit pricey, but has pretty good food with decent variety. Verrill Farm does have good pre-prepared meals. After that you're down to the pizza joints, and as a transplanted New Yorker, it ain't pizza around here.
The same folks who own Serafina's also own Sierra's in Maynard, and the food there is awful. Maynard also has decent Indian food (Monsoon), and a couple pretty good Thai joints.
Sudbury has two good sushi spots - Oishii which is really good and really expensive, and Fugakyu which is good and a bit more reasonable.
I've heard good things about Luigi's in Bedford, but haven't been.
