Ellen Holtzman mentioned some classic Melrose restaurants in her article, but we also have some new places in Melrose to grab a bite.
Tooba’s, the new sandwich shop that opened this summer, just got a great writeup in the Boston Globe:
Freshness is the marker of Tooba’s Café: chopped tomatoes, fresh basil, crisp lettuce, and unusual additions like radishes. There are soups, salads and breakfast items like bagels and muffins. The meats are well seasoned, and Chaharom insists he tries to make everything on a daily basis, which means that if he runs out of an item, well, you just can’t order it. Come back tomorrow.
Just steps from Shaws Supermarket (and City Hall!), with great food and a welcoming atmosphere, Tooba’s is definitely a place to check out if you haven’t already.
The newest addition to the Melrose restaurant scene is Comella’s, an Italian restaurant that also has locations in several other cities. They’re at 478A Main Street, right downtown.
And coming soon: La Qchara, the new restaurant that Lorenzo and Emily Tenriero of Coffee, Tea and Me are opening at 506 Franklin Street, near the Highlands train station. They will be having an opening celebration on Thursday, October 3, starting at 6 p.m., and they will open for business on the following Monday. Stop by Thursday night to enjoy some delicious refreshments and wish them well on their new endeavor!
