Husband and I just moved to Melrose and alas, we find ourselves in the midst of what looks to our untrained eyes like a sort of culinary black hole. Help me see what I'm missing in the Melrose/Malden/Wakefield area....is it really all about mediocre "family-style" Italian?
We've been to Mexico Lindo. Pretty adequate, though the margaritas were weak.
Turner's - meh. Oysters were good but the rest was decidedly forgettable.
All Seasons in Malden - expectations were low, but it was not too bad! Two high points - they made our food legitimately spicy when we begged for heat, and they have a decent scotch selection (Aardbeg at a Thai/fusion restaurant, who knew?).
Delivery recommendations (besides pizza??) would be much appreciated too.....thanks in advance!!!
