Burlington, MA Eats
Going to Lahey clinic on Sunday to visit a friend and need a rec for a great dinner spot open on Sunday night. Sushi or other asian would be great, but anything noteworthy and not a chain will satisfy. Thanx!
just up 128 a bit is Sushi Island in Wakefield, arguably one of the better sushi places north of Boston. there is also a Thai place right next door that i hear is Very Good but the name escapes me.
you'll probably get a better response if you move this thread to the Boston Board.
Cafe Escadrille is not sushi nor asian, but it has pretty great food. Also, while I hate to recommend restaurants that I haven't eaten at, there's a new fusion restaurant that opened about a year ago called The Ginger Pad-An Asian Bistro that I've been dying to try. I've read a few reviews and it sounds pretty good (website-www.gingerpad.com). The Ginger Pad is in the Wayside Commons along with quite a few other restaurants. Hope that's helpful.
One vote against Escadrille. Overpriced, pretentious - neither unique and special nor any sort of delicious food find. The Catch, recommended below, is just so much better. New Jang Su Korean BBQ is also much more delicious. Ginger in Bedford center is a decent burb sushi/Japanese place (not up to real Japanese standards, but better than most burb sushi).
L'Andana has also gotten great reviews on the Boston Board. Here is just one thread:
Not to quibble, but I think that, depending on where the OP is driving after dinner, Wakefield is more than a bit up 128. If you're heading North anyway, it's a good suggestion. Otherwise, I'd look closer to Lahey.
Also, there is a Capitol Grille at Wayside Common Plaza.
Another option that is not very far from Lahey Clinic would to drive into Winchester (about 15 mins) and try Catch restaurant on Church St. in the center of town. It is great little place that serves very creative seafood dishes with very good service and a great wine list.
Bamboo in Bedford MA. on the Burlington line is about a 5-10 minute drive away from the Lahey Clinic. Bamboo has excellent Chinese & Japanese food including sushi. They also have a Sunday dinner buffet from 5pm-8pm.
