        31 Main in Ayer is good. They're fairly new (maybe a year?) and are a fine addition to an area somewhat devoid of good dining options.

        That said, I'd also highly recommend Fihlo's Cucina on Main St. in Groton. Outstanding Italian, very reasonable, and it adjoins a nice wine shop so you can buy your wine next door and then drink it with your dinner. Fihlo's is small, though, and much of their business is takeout so it's not exactly the 'fine dining ambience' that makes it special. It's the food and the prices/value.

        One other suggestion - if Korean is to your liking, there's a humble but excellent Korean place in Ayer called Woo Jung. Definitely worthwhile.

          I grew up in Townsend! I heard Yee's Village Chinese food still exists there. ha ha! I WOULD NOT recommend there. Anyhow, Filho's in Groton is good as is Gibbet Hill. The Boo in Westford (Bamboo) has good Asian cuisine.

            Oh, the restaurant at the Nashoba Valley Winery in Bolton is good too. Very nice meals there.

              Great suggestions! We went to Nashoba Valley Winery and it hit the spot...we'll definitely return. Thanks for the help.

                The restaurant is named J's: http://www.nashobawinery.com/j/flash/...
                The Winery portion also does tastings for their own wine, beer, and spirits - including a single malt they recently put out.
