nice lunch in Sturbridge
My husband and I were casting about for a lunch spot in Sturbridge...Ugly Duckling/Whistling Swan is no longer reliable, I'm a big fan of Kaizen but it is a bit pricey and spousal unit does not care for sushi, publick house also too pricey...so we stopped in at Soup To Nuts in the Millyard Marketplace. Terrific home-made fish chowder, good sandwiches, really nice people...I'd go back in a heartbeat. (But Kaizen is still currently my favorite restaurant in Sturbridge)
I'd suggest trying the Oxhead Tavern, next to (and part of) the Stubridge Host Hotel. Food was pretty good, prices fairly reasonable, and the ambience was nice.
While the building is surely an improvement, the prices from Rom's to Romaldo's have remained the same. And while it is not pricier, you should know they are not open for lunch. Still for a great meal, a great value, and now A great ambience, Romaldo's can't be beat in Sturbridge.
