Fireflys in Framingham

I heard a rumor that Fireflys in Framingham has shut its doors. Can anyone verify this? And if so, why?


Actually being middle eastern I make raw kibbee all the time but I use freshly cut lamb.

Recommendation for nice family dinner spot in Framingham-Natick-Sudbury area

Fresh, whole crab

Hi chefstu - I live in the Natick area.

Fresh, whole crab

I am looking for a place to purchase fresh, whole crab that I can steam or create a wonderful crab boil. Can crab be shipped fresh or does the sender have to cook it first before sending it along? All suggestions are welcomed!!

Saturday Night in Bethlehem, NH - need a nice restaurant.

Good Morning - My wife and I will be spending the night in Bethlehem, NH this coming Saturday and would like to know of a nice place to eat. Price is no concern but atmosphere is - thanks in advance.

Where and How to purchase Prime Rib

I would like to prepare at home a nice prime rib dinner but am not sure what to ask for at my butcher counter. I would like to have it with the bone in (preferably two to four bones in size). I am looking in the metro west area (Natick, Framingham, etc.) to puchase the meat. What stores would carry a nice cut of meat and know how to cut it to my liking? Basically, what should I ask for at the butcher counter? Thanks in advance for your help and Happy New Year!!

Framingham Center Restaurants?

The Aztec is very good having eaten there many times. It's small but quaint and the locals are there every night!

November Openings and Closings

Margarita's is set to open tomorrow in the space last occupied by Naked Fish at the intersection of Rte. 30 (Commonwealth Ave.) and Speen Street in Framingham. La Carreta, I believe, is set to open by the end of the coming week according to a friend I spoke with over the weekend. They are replacing Bickford's on Rte. 30 Framingham.

Hey So. New Englanders...where are you buying your Thanksgiving Turkey this year?

I get mine at Market Basket - a butterball usually for $0.49/pound. I buy a few and stock up!!

I need recs for good BBQ along the length of CT-15 from I-84 to NY

We live in Natick, MA and come down the Mass Pike to I-84.

I need recs for good BBQ along the length of CT-15 from I-84 to NY

I am new to Chowhound postings (this being my first) and thought I would seek the advice of you Chowhound regulars. My wife and I are traveling to Adelphi University to visit our son and recently came across CT-15. Much easier to drive vs. I-95; I am looking for good BBQ anywhere along this route that is not too far from the exit. Any help will be gladly appreciated.
