takeout for lunch around the Blue Hills?

Hello! I've done all the searches I can and need some personalized help, please!

I'm hosting a small meeting in the Blue Hills Reservation and want to bring in lunch... any suggestions for places nearby (Quincy, Braintree, Milton)? Panera works, but I thought while we were in the neighborhood we could try a local gem!

Thanks lots ~

  1. How about Newcomb Farms Family Restaurant in Milton?
    1139 Randolph Ave, Milton, MA 02186 (617) 698-9547

    The Yelp review heading says they offer take - out. I couldn't find a website for them, but if you google Newcomb Farms menu, I should think you can find what's available.

    1. The Wood Road Deli might work for you. I love their Mill wrap. It's basically a salad in a wrap with feta cheese, bacon and ranch dressing. I've been to Newcomb Farms a few times but mainly for breakfast and they are good as well.

        unfortuately their limit on catering orders is 10 people... but looks good for another time, thanks very much!

      2. Bent's cookie factory on Randolph Ave in Milton makes really good sandwich platters that I've gotten for meetings. It's within a mile of the Blue Hills Reservation off of Randolph Ave.

          just talked with a nice guy at Bent's and ordered a variety of lunch boxes with cookies (gotta get cookies). They have a good variety of veggie and non-veggie sandwiches that sound yummy, thanks for the advice!

            Totally forgot about Bents. That's the perfect recommendation.

          2. How about some goat curry rotis and spicy chickpea doubles from the Mattapan location of Ali's Roti? :) That's not that far.

              ooo, I guess not this crowd, but it's on my personal plan for after the meeting. ;)

            2. I like the Ali's Roti suggestion. Another would be N&H Saigon Sub in Randolph for Banh Mi. Very close to Blue Hills at 1185 N Main St.

                Food here is awful. Dumbed down for people who really do not want vietnamese food.
