Looking for Saturday Lunch Near Milton Academy

My daughter will be taking a Saturday course at Milton Academy and we're looking for a few places to get lunch afterwards. We're open to a variety of possibilities (but the closer the better) but hoping for something interesting.

  1. Milton is largely a culinary wasteland. If you want interesting, head to Dorchester! Nearby, Bent's prepares first-rate sandwiches in the very same building where they made hardtack for the Union Army; it's worth a peek. Further south on Randolph Ave., Newcomb Farms does a a more-than-serviceable job with American classics for a geriatric set that appreciates the low prices.

    1. re: dsmoxie

      Ashmont Grille, also in Dorchester, can't be more than 10 minutes away, and is great for lunch.

    2. Yeah, second dsmoxie's comments. My poor friends in Milton constantly complain about the lack of eating venues. Marketplace Cafe (was A Lighter Fare) in East Milton Square has good breakfast, and I believe a selection of sandwiches and salads for lunch. Never been for lunch, but a great option for breakfast.

      There's the newly opened 88 Wharf and Abbey Park. Abbey Park in particular has mixed reviews on this board. Have not heard much on 88 Wharf.

      Both Dorchester and Quincy are close neighbors, and I think offering much better choices from pub food, comfort food, or strong ethnic selections.
