Sudbury resturant advice needed!


I could use some help. I would like to get a gift certificate to a resturant in the Sudbury area for my friend and her husband, who just got married. I dont know the area because I live out of state. I would really appreciate some help.

I am thinking of spending about $100 - so somewhere nice but not that expensive would be great. Also, I am not sure if the new husband is a person that woud experiment with food or not. So some place "safe" that would appeal to people with mainstream tastes would be great . Any ideas?

  1. Sudbury doesn't have much in the way of restaurants, though Oishii may be a good option (not sure if you want a place a bit more "safe," however):

    Does the place have to be in Sudbury? Can it be in a neighboring city or town? If so, Framingham and Marlborough have a few places that are decent, including Allora (Marlborough).

      Oh yes, it can be somewhere nearby!
      Allora looks great!! Thanks so much!
      As for the Oishii rec, though I know I would love to try the place, I am looking for something "safer" than that for them -
      Thanks again.

        if you want to be really safe you could do a gift card to Legal Seafood. There are many locations in Greater Boston including one in Framingham that is probably 10-15 minutes from Sudbury.

          Wow - another great idea. I could even buy the gift card locally rather than wait to get mailed it here! Thanks so much. I think that is the way to go. I am very grateful for the help. Jama

    2. I would suggest Bullfinchs Restaurant - varied menu; open for Sunday brunch as well as dinner; something for everyone there. I think the website is but you might have to do a google search for the right URL.

        Bullfinch's is good. and romantic. Coach Grille on route 20 on Wayland/Weston line is also good.

          I second the Coach Grille. As a matter of fact, I'm taking my wife there on Monday for a birthday dinner.
