Hubbard Inn opened in February around the corner from my office and I’ve been there a couple times for lunch now. The first time was in August on a warm day. I went with my coworkers Garrett, Marlena and Bill and we sat outside. I had the nicoise salad and it was delicious. Garrett and Bill had the lamb burger (served with mint, cucumber, red onion, feta, and tzatziki sauce) and Marlena had the gazpazcho. Everyone really liked their food. I thought my salad was great. Very fresh and tasty.
So last week when Greg and I were planning to get together for lunch I suggested Hubbard Inn and he agreed. Funny story – Greg and his wife were planning to go to Hub 51 for dinner one night and Greg remembered that we had gone there for lunch so he looked up my old blog post from that lunch. In that post I wrote “Greg works pretty close to me now, so maybe we’ll be able to meet up more often. The last time I saw him was August of last year!” Yeah. And that was written last August. So, it seems we only get together for lunch on an annual basis!
We went to Hubbard Inn yesterday. It was great to see Greg and catch up after so long! And again, I thought the food was great. I had the caprese sandwich (fresh mozarella, proscuitto di parma, arugula, tomatoes, focaccia). The waiter talked Greg into the fried oyster sandwich (with remoulade and slaw) and he really liked it, although he confessed that he is not really usually an “oyster guy.”
I think Hubbard Inn is a pretty good go-to spot for lunches. Glad that it is so close to our office!
