Can Watertown Become a Gourmet Destination?
A town famous for diners and pubs now has a handful of gourmet and upscale restaurants. Are more on the way?
In a town known for its diners and pubs some eateries that attract foodies from near and far have popped up, but is Watertown ready to become a gourmet destination?
This question was floated in a recent Boston Globe article about Tim Maslow, the chef that transformed Strip T's from a sandwich place to a hip and modern restaurant. He has been nominated as a semifinalist for the James Beard "Rising Star Chef of the Year."
Many people head to Watertown to go to one of several diners for some good old comfort food. The town's night life centers around bars and pubs around town.
What will replace these restaurants? Will they be places for those seeking a gourmet meal, or will they be more traditional restaurants? What kinds of restaurants would you like to see come to town?
