Is anyone going to boycott Market Basket?

Hargau,
It's kinda like a venture capitalist bought the company. Strip and sell. Goodbye local jobs. Goodbye good grocery store. Legal, but much of what has led to the downfall of good companies in our great company.

Mid Cape Cod 2014

Great reviews. Got here yesterday for the week and it's funny that as I was reading this my GFwas saying 'I have to take you to the Red Cottage for breakfast'.

Stone's Publick House, Ashland

Stones is excellent and the menu ranges from sandwiches like smoked salmon BLT, real corned beef to a boullabaise , steaks, meatloaf and a killer truffled mac n cheese.
Always a couple Jack's Abby and Mayflower on tap.

BOS to Newport

I go to Evelyns every year, love the ride, love the view. I don't love the food, except clam cakes.

Why no deep fried mussels?

Oleana in Cambridge, MA has (had) them on the menu with a tarator sauce. I felt they got lost in the breading.
And, I agree they would be a PIA to shuck. My guess is these were cooked and removed from the shell..

St Patrick's Day 2015--best place to go?

Sounds like you have never been to Boston on St. Patty's Day. Think of NYE meets Valentines Day, add lots of beer and Bushmills, overcrowded drunken vomiting fake Boston Irish. Yeah, that's what it's like.

Jewish Rye in Boston

Call Widoff's in Worcester and see who has their bread in Boston. Easily the best around.

Inexpensive dinner near Westborough

There is a Korean place in an old diner near the rotary, may be Westborough Korean. Excellent authentic food and very reasonable. El Basha on Computer Drive is very good too and BYOB.
I always wondered if the Westborough Inn was a real Inn.

ice cream stand?

Rota Spring Farm in Sterling has great ice cream, a little farm stand and their own cows right outside. It's out there, but a nice ride off route 62 and 110.
Quality, portion and price compare to Kimball Farms with more flavors and Rota will let you put 2 flavors on a small which is about 24 oz of ice cream.

Restaurant recs for Dennisport, Yarmouth & Harwich?

Went to Yarmouth House over the winter. Nothing special, funny lounge lizard piano guy though.
We saw no less that 3 employees, including our dinner server carrying dirty glassware with 4 fingers inside.

Stone's Public House is a gem with excellent food, especially their french fries. Burgers, fish n chips, and great sandwiches as well. Good beer, wine and cocktails and if you go early enough can hit the Farmers Market.

Brazilian food--catered in house for small group Cambridge

I would go to any Brazilian bakery and get a multitude of the small snacks, kibbee, cheese balls, sausage in pastry, chicken skewers and the like and have a feast.

Ethnic or Interesting in and around Metro Southwest

Al wadi in West Roxbury is very good, as well as Byblos. There is a very small Thai place on Washington St I used to enjoy some years ago

My favorite in Metrowest is the orange and coffee twist at Tasty Treat in Ashland. Or orange with vanilla on top of it.

Breakfast/lunch spots in Milford, MA area

I was in the area today so I stopped in Gene's and had a garlicky, spicy porketta sub. Almost as good as my porketta. A real bargain at 4.99.

Delicous Pizza Dough

One time I bought some from Bertucci's and they asked 'would you like us to roll it out for you?' Of course.
