Bedford/MIT/ LL area restaurants

I am going to be staying in the area for a few days. Any worthy restaurant suggestions? I have seen Dalya's and may have tried on a prior trip. Looking for a nice place, Italian or innovative cooking to enjoy after a day of out of town business.

Dalya's Restaurant
20 North Rd Ste 1, Bedford, MA 01730

  1. The standard in that area is Luigi's in the shopping center on Great raod that houses Whole foods. Lexington Center has a few nice places. Ixtapa is a mexican place that people see to like. Cut across to Burlington and try L'Andana for upscale but not too expensive italian.

    86 Cambridge Street, Burlington, MA 01803

    349 Main St, Woburn, MA 01801

    1. Ginger is a Japanese restaurant in Bedford Center, across from the Common.

      Head down Mass. Ave through Lexington into Arlington. Across from Arlington High School is Blue Ribbon BBQ. It's not really a sit-down place, mostly take-out. Further down from Blue Ribbon is Toraya, a very good sushi place.

      Toraya Restaurant
      890 Massachusetts Ave, Arlington, MA 02476

      Blue Ribbon BBQ
      910 Massachusetts Ave, Arlington, MA 02476

        1. re: MC Slim JB

          It took me forever to figure out this cryptic abbreviation. The penny just dropped, and it also made sense of the Bedford-MIT connection which had puzzled the heck out of me: DChunger doesn't mean MIT main campus, they mean MIT *Lincoln Labs*, in Lexington.

            Nice analysis, A
            Summer/Winter in the Burlington Marriott probably fills your OP best
            or make a trip to Belmont for Il Casale if Italian is a must
            the Smokebox in Bedford, new but hopefully working out the kinks
            New Jang Su Korean BBQ in Billerica
            Sichuan Gourmet in Billerica
            Asiana Bistro in Bedford is better than average Americanized pan asian (damning with faint praise)

            Sichuan Gourmet
            502 Boston Rd, Billerica, MA 01821

            Asiana Bistro
            200 Great Rd, Bedford, MA 01730

            1. re: justbeingpolite

              Just to clarify for the OP: New Jang Su is in Burlington.

              1. re: three of us

                Oops, right. On the same Rte 3A as the Billerica restaurants mentioned.
