Menotomy Grill - Arlington (anyone been?)

This place opened a few months back....For some reason I just can't pronounce it. But heck if anyone knows if the food is good and atmosphere is decent I'll work on my phonics. Opinions appreciated !

  1. I don't think it has opened yet...has it? If you ever take the 77 bus into/outta Arlington, you will hear the correct pronunciation! :D

    1. I live around the corner from Menotomy Grill. It should open very soon.

      1. I read in another post and on their website their aiming for the 10th.

          Funny thing is they have a www. and it does not say they are not open yet. However, there are NO prices on the menu items. Thought that was odd for a tavern type place, but maybe its cuz they are not open. I did just see 6/10 opening in the Patch. thanks for the heads up.

            Oh now you mention it I think it was their facebook page that said the 10th.

              Patch posted part of their opening menu with prices. Seems a bit high for what they're offering, but I guess with a location next to a hotel, they can get away with it. $16 for fish & chips, $11 for pulled pork sandwich.


          2. This link says the Grill will open the week after Memorial Day... Seems like it should open any day now.

                    There's a Menotomy Rocks park in Arlington which the locals call Monotonous Rocks or Boring Boulders.

                    Personally I lean towards pronouncing it with a "meh" to start (meh-NAH-dah-mee). But tomato-tomato, right? :)

                      Let's hope Menotomy Grill gets off to a better than "meh" start!

                        There are a lot of area resident hopes riding on this place! Don't let us down!

                          I know right, I just thought the same thing.
