Cafe Barada’s owners have maintained the quality and taste of their Lebanese and Middle Eastern food since their origins in Arlington in 1985, and they still have the best hummus around.
A gorgeous renovation of an Arlington Five Cents Savings Bank and loosening of alcohol licensing laws brought flora to area diners in 1996, but the high-end restaurant keeps evolving, adding Thanksgiving dinner and a bar menu in its café space.
When you have a hankering for North End red sauce Italian but don’t want to deal with North End parking, prices and hit-or-miss quality, head to Vinny’s Ristorante – always “Vinny’s at Night” to us.
For a restaurant that has been open to the general public only since June 10, The Menotomy Grill & Tavern in Arlington is already the answer to a pub lover’s prayers.
This was indeed a five-star dining experience. Il Casale is on the pricy side but the quality, flavor and value are worth it.
