Deluxe station diner in Newton for the southern fried chicken blue plate . Half a chicken fried to order with mashed potatoes and choice of vegetable . So good but it takes at least 20 mins

Barking crab- Boston... Had naked lobster roll... Yum!!! & brothers roast beef in Weymouth... Delish!!! :)
Fuloon in Malden for the amazing "Mandarin Honey Tender Pork", and Popeye's in Everett last night for the best fried chicken on the planet. Sorry everywhere else.
Melting Pot. Colonial Inn (a bit disappointing - new menu is boring)
Singh's Cafe in Wellesley Hills. Love that place, and it gets great ratings. Yet it's always quiet in the evening when I have been. Mobbed at lunch and fair bit of takeout business, so hoping that's enough to keep them going!
Cafe Eleganza in Pembroke, read some negative reviews and didn't know what to expect. Ended up with the best veal parm that I've had in several years. Wait staff was great. We will go back!
Greenland Cafe in Salem. Great burger and their chicken tenders were FRESH. Decent beer selection and knowledgeable bartender made for a great lunch.
Black Lobster in Salem. Decent fried seafood.
