Must-go places near Stow, etc?

We've got a Zipcar for tomorrow and are going apple-picking in the Stow area, Honeypot Hill and Shelburne Farms. First, any other farms in the vicinity we should go to? Second, any restaurants, pubs, bars, etc. that would be worth stopping in to? I'm not familiar with the area but while I've got the car, I thought it would be fun to branch out. Thanks for the suggestions.

  1. Not too far away is Verrill Farm in Concord. I've actually never payed very close attention to their produce, but they make excellent baked goods, sandwiches, and prepared foods. Their pies are my all-time favorite.

      You might want to try something in Maynard the town next to Stow-there is Monsoon for Indian,Little Pussan for Korean .,or 51 Main for American. You could take route 117 back towards the city and stop at Verrill farm as mentioned above or stop at one of the many reataurants in Waltham! Have a great day!

    2. Nashoba Valley Winery is in nearby Bolton in a pleasant rural setting. I thought their restaurant, called "J's," was good -- open for Saturday lunch or dinner and Sunday brunch. They like diners to make reservations, though. There's also a winery store that lets you sample before you buy.

        there is also the Chinese restaurant in Acton that has been getting a lot of rave reviews here!

      2. The acton chinese place! Delicious, and a good use of zip car time. It is called the Acton Coffee and Ice Cream Shop, I believe. here is a link to a long discussion:

        1. I'll give some shout outs to Hudson. Hudson Portuguese club has a restaurant open to the public. Had a very good pork with clams a few months ago. Chloe Bistro , I've had excellent dinners and I believe they do brunch. Excellent bakery in the center of town. Horseshoe Pub, decent food, great beer selection. Best in the burbs. Nancy's Airfield gets good reviews, never been crazy about it.
