Start Line's fish and chips

Start Line Brewing is known for its beer, but they are also putting themselves on the map for their food. During the pandemic, they are open for carry out and have some delicious foods to choose from.

Comfort food is king here, so start off with one of their apps like BBQ nachos, Brewhouse Poutine, onion rings or herb parmesan fries. For dinner, there are many sandwiches like a vegetarian-friendly spicy black bean burger. Carnivores may want to try their BBQ puled port sandwich, chicken sandwich or flank steak sandwich. They are also offering a lobster roll and fish & chips. (Check out that portion and those fries! It was so good!) Start Line's menu also includes a few salads like a grilled southwest Caesar salad and a cobb salad. There's also mac & cheese and lobster mac & cheese. Eat Up New England recommends their carrot cake for dessert

Pappardelle bolognese
Arturo's Ristorante
Westborough, MA

We are all so lucky that restaurants are still offering take-out and deliveries at this time. There's never been a better time to show your support for your favorite local spots. 

We enjoyed a huge Italian dinner from Arturo's this week. Every meal comes with a little bread. Their menu includes favorites like eggplant rollatini, penne chicken and broccoli, shrimp scampi, piccata and linguine and meatballs. There are a bunch of pizzas to choose from or make your own. I loved their large portion of pappardelle bolognese. There was enough for two meals. For dessert, my wife and I split the mouth-watering limoncello mascarpone cake. 

Right now, Arturo's is also offering family style to-go dinner, designed to feed a family of four. Choose from chicken parm, penne chicken & broccollli or penne with meatballs. They all come with a salad. Check out their website for more information. ,
