  1. I suggest searching the board looking for restaurants in Hingham. Lots of great choices. I haven't been for a v. long time, but you can also search for The Venetian in Weymouth. There is a recent thread.

    1. Was at Windy City Eats this past weekend which perhaps is a tad too casual for you - unless you don't mind dining al-trunko. There is small outdoor patio too. In any case, I thought they did a fine job of bringing the Chicago dog/sausage culture to the east coast. They're sourcing Vienna products (and Boar's Head) and have a very nice, snappy natural-casing dog which they treat well. The polish was a classic skinless Vienna all-beef product, but managed to also have a nice snap with the char-grill prep it received. The beef was an abomination - just a bland, tepid, tasteless jus.

      Also popped into El Sarape, though I can't say I'd recommend it. The guac was scooped out of a big batch from the fridge, ice-cold, and lacking any flava. The chicken&chorizo chilaquiles was tasty - chicken and chorizo smothered in a spicy tomato sauce, but I'm still trying to figure out how the hell this dish is related to chilaquiles. Got an order of an ancho chile guisado to-go which was extremely bitter and had that acrid off-putting taste of stale ingredients.

      1. You could go to derby street. Jasper white's summer shack is casual and great.

        1. If you like pizza and old-school joints, Denly's just outside of Jackson Square has some of the best pizza on the South Shore, IMO.

            I haven't been to Denly's since I was like 10 years old....some 30 odd years ago...but I remember the pizza being outstanding.....and my brother went there not too long ago and said it hasn't changed a bit, still the same great pizza. I need to check that spot out again.

            I think I may have been the guy who started the Venitian thread, and had sang it's praises, but went back a couple of times since, and the experience wasn't as nice as that first time (not really the first time, grew up in Weymouth and went there all the time as a kid)....maybe a case of rose colored glasses heavily tinted with nostalgia.

              devilham, ever been to Buck's Tavern ? now that's a great little bar.

              1. re: Nab

                I have not, I only went to the Venetian that first (in many years) time to meet my folks at a halfway point from my location (Boston) to theirs (Scituate) at a resteraunt we could all agree was good (again, my folks took us kids here many times when I was young, and the memories are fond). If ever I'm looking to wet my whistle in Weymouth though, I will check it out!

            2. How about Lime Leaf in Weymouth. Our fave thai so far. Most thai tend to lean on the sweet side but 99% they are right on.
              They are very accomodating & have made many of their dishes for my vegan friends. My fave is their crispy pad thai w/veggies & shrimp (not on menu) & Bee's special ginger & scallion fish dish (also not on the menu). For apps, we love the cozy shrimp & their fried calamari.

                Actually I had lunch at Lime Leaf today, it was wonderful as always. I love their chive dumplings, fresh rolls, crispy watercress and seaweed salad appetizers. The curry is excellent, also Drunken Noodle, Hot Pepper Beef, Pad Paradise; everything I've ever had there has been delicious, it's a gem.
