Framingham Center Restaurants?
We are going to a show at the Amazing Things Arts Center Friday night. Is there anything chowish nearby? A few years ago there used to be a Czech restaurant there but I know it has closed. Thanks for your suggestions!
That's downtown Framingham you are going to, not Framingham Centre which is over by Framingham State. Not too far away on Route 30 is The Aegean which is quite good. It is the land of chain restaurants. There is a new restaurant at 101 Concord Street which has received quite good reviews. The name of it is Limey's Pub and the owners are from Yorkshire. As you would expect from a pub the menu has burgers, shepherds pie, fish and chips etc. Their fries are supposed to be particularly good. This restaurant takes the place of the Sampan which was a real dump with lots of problems so I wish these owners the best. Downtown Framingham could certainly use revitalization.
Ditto on the neighborhood-name correction. It doesn't make sense but there it is. Limey's Pub is very enjoyable. Not superb quality, but fine. It's very close to Amazing Things, and is the only even vaguely chowish place downtown, as far as I am aware. The real chow mecca of Framingham is Sichuan Gourmet on Rt.9, an authentic Szechuan paradise and all-around excellent Chinese restaurant. If you opt for Rt. 30, right by the Aegean is also Big Fresh, which is a healthy/natural foods cafe, with wraps, stir-fries, etc. They source a lot of their ingredients locally.

The Chicken Bone has good wings, as does Wings over Framingham. I may recommend going to the Magic Oven Brazillian bakery on Waverly St and having a kibbee, one of those big cheese balls, some grilled chicken and a rum ball. It's a short walk.
