Lavender Sudbury

I had some hankering for Classic American, so I headed out to Lavender in Sudbury on this beautiful day. I wasn's sure about the traffic since this was the day before Thanksgiving but going there it wasn't a problem but going home I had to get off Rte 128 and take Rte 2 and then the backroads to get home.

They are located in a plaza just off Rte 20 with plenty of parking and they even have outdoor seating. Of course, the view is of the parking lot.

Very sleek and modern dining room with plenty of light and a really cool mural of the Great Wall of China.

There is also a sports bar separated from the dining room. There is another bar in the dining room area.

I never really got this. OK, it's crunchy and sickly sweet but why? You get linen tablecloth but paper napkins and of course, knife and fork.

Their lunch offering is an excellent deal, not only do you get the aforementioned snack, you also have a choice of soups, differents apps and a salad. The Hot & Sour Soup seemed a bit bland to start with but then the heat kicked in! It turned out to be OK. The salad was mostly lettuce with some shards of cabbage and carrot added, but it had a dressing so at least it was a proper salad.

Here is what they call General Tso Chicken ($9.25) ordered extra spicy that the waitress confirmed when she delivering the dish and it was also marked as +spicy twice on the receipt. Of course it wasn't spicy, this is Sudbury. The chicken was made with the proper dark meat without too much batter, but some of them had been in the fryer a bit too long and were quite hard. I could have done with a tad more sauce. It was a VERY generous portion without any trace of the despicable broccoli. My appetizer of a chicken wing was a proper wing, nicely cooked, crisp on the outside and tender and juicy on the inside. Overall a very pleasant drive here and a lovely lunch in a very cool place. Service was excellent with an appropriately attired staff.
