I just got back from what will be the soon to be newly renamed and already revamped Bickfords in Framingham- for the second time. The name change is coming but I don't know when, it will have the word "tavern" in it is all I was told.
The interior is basically the same but with the addition of dark wood and divider panels.
The new menu has traditional Bickfords fare with the addition of some new items. The new items are seafood and from talking to the staff, seafood will be a major menu item.
On two different times, I had a lobster omlet ($9.99) and lobster eggs benedict ($10.99). Both orders had a very generous helping of lobster meat (they say they uses that from the knuckle and claws). Essentially the omlet was a cheese omlet with the meat added. The eggs benedict was a bit light in both amount and consistency in the Hollandaise sauce.
IMHO, it's becoming a good solid restaurant and the lobster portions speak for themselves as value for the price.
