You may be surprised that Natick has some very good resturants. They are located primarily in the Down Town area (which makes it very nice to live near Down Town so you can walk to them) and The Natick Collection. Today I'd like to share one of my favorites with you, Maxwells 148.
When you walk in you feel like you are in one of Boston's fine resturants. Sumptuous fabrics and hand carved teak reflect soft lighting to create a cozy, comfortable, welcoming ambiance. Guests who enter the restaurant often find themselves revisiting time and time again, largely in part of Chef/Owner Mitchell Maxwell's innovative interpretations of Asian and Italian cuisines.
This wonderful treasure located in Natick, MA is the creation of partners Mitchell Maxwell and Randy Nason. Invaluable assets such as Maxwell's culinary skills and Nason's savvy business experience create the perfect duo for success at Maxwells 148. The imaginative Italian and Asian cuisine shines with the inspired glow of Maxwell's experiences with chefs from the Friuli region of Italy, and by traveling through Hawaii, Japan and south to Indonesia. Partner Randy Nason is the accomplished leader of Maxwell's staff, a superior crew providing extraordinary service. Take your time to peruse the specially selected eighty bottle wine list, a delight for wine lovers, and a tribute to Nason's wine knowledge.
Since opening four years ago, Maxwells 148 has received accolades from prestigious publications such as The Boston Globe, Zagat Survey, Citysearch and Wine Spectator. Maxwells has also had excellent reviews from the Phantom Gourmet and TV Diner. For almost five years now the restaurant has positioned itself as a triple threat – a pioneering menu, exceptional service, and an inviting atmosphere. A challenge in any restaurant, Maxwells 148 has maintained a great staff, owners who are passionate about their job, and a relaxing, eclectic vibe.
With the opening of Maxwells 148, Maxwell created a menu that captures the culinary influences of Asian and Italian cuisine by using imported ingredients. Nason emphasizes that there is a focus on providing the "best of everything", from the overall atmosphere to the quality and character of the service, food and wine.
