Help me out chow's!!!

I'm going to a play in Concord tonight and i'm looking for a place to grab some dinner before the show. Probably a group of 6-8 people.

any suggestions would be greatly appreciated because I am not familiar with the area at all

    The whole Concord area (including Acton) is pretty much a food wasteland. I can't figure out why, but it is. There's a 99 in West Concord and a Paparazzi going west on Rt. 2 right before the rotary. There's also a Not Your Average Joe's on Rt 27 in Acton. For real food, there's the AKA Bistro in Lincoln and Cast Iron Kitchen in Maynard.

    Its a good thing I know how to cook. Good luck.

    145 Lincoln Rd, Lincoln, MA 01773

      We had brunch at AKA Bistro before a visit to the DeCordova Museum recently and were very pleased by everything.

      It would be my choice far and away over the chains mentioned. Parking is easy there too.

        Great chinese place next to Paparazzi, downstairs from the sushi joint.

        Concord is not the best place for restaurants. Which direction are you coming from? Any particular type of food your crew is into?

        You might want to consider Lexington or Waltham, both towns have chow worthy places that should fit your needs
