Lunch on Rte. 20 in Northboro MA area

Am meeting mom for lunch next week. She lives in Holden, I will be in Marlboro for a meeting. Anything around Rte 20 that's fabulous for lunch?

  1. Is the Dublin Pub still there?

    1. Nothing fabulous but Allora's pretty good. Welley's has promise. Linguini's is reportedly good.

        Has anyone tried Zem Ham for Turkish fare? Mom wants to try it again. She said it's quite good.

      2. I like Yama Zakura, if sushi/japanese interests you.
        Linguini's is very good food, but the ambiance doesn't lend itself to being called fabulous.

        there's a little place near Northborough center called Specialteas which is totally a place for "ladies who lunch". They have a wonderful selection of teas, and light lunches including soups, salads and open face sandwiches. It might be just the thing for meeting one's mother for lunch.

        I haven't tried Zem Ham. If you go there, please report back I'd love to know how it is.

          ChinaCat, my Armenian mom loves Zem Ham so we may head there. Although the tearoom sounds perfect.
