Best Take-Out Food Newton

Best Take-Out Food Newton

Dinner doesn’t have to be what my mother used call “the dangerous hour.” With hungry family members, parents sitting in traffic trying to get home and cook just to find the cupboard bare. The Farm Grill in Newton has a great menu with plates and a la cart choices. Ingredients are fresh and delicious. Can’t go wrong selections like Greek Salad with Chicken Giro or Skewers, Baked Lamb served with salad and two sides, and Fresh Haddock or Swordfish Kabob, if seafood is your preference. Top off your meal with one of the many fabulous desserts. My favorite is the homemade rice pudding. And grab some of the homemade Greek yogurt to have in the fridge.

If you would rather dine out, there is plenty of seating in the cheerful dining room. It is a great place to meet for lunch and keep The Farm Grill in mind for your next catered event.
