Fife and Drum Lexington

Fife and Drum in Lexington are another restaurant located in a Vocational School. This should not be confused with Fife and Drum in Concord that is a different institution. Beware of the speed bumps, they are vicious.

They serve lunch à la carte on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and a buffet on Fridays between 11:30-01:00 Reservations are recommended. You can reserve online using OpenTable, and I think the menu is available there as well. Today was the last day before summer vacation, so I can't verify that the menu is accurate.

The restaurant was nice and of course staffed with students. You can see the buffet in the back.

Today's menu looked pretty good, and so did the price ($8.50).

Fiest trip to the buffet yielded a nice salad, Roasted Potatoes, Brunoise Carrots, Meatloaf and Roast Pork. This was surprisingly well executed, The potatoes were cooked well, and seasoned. The pork was tender and juicy, and the meatloaf was tasty with a nice gravy. I just wish there was some sort of gravy to go with the pork.

The salad section of the buffet was very dark, and the dressings were not labeled, so I just chanced it and got a vinaigrette that wasn't bad. Biscuits were available.

I skipped the pasta and the chicken. Everything was warm, and the pork was carved to order. This was a pleasant lunch, and I'll be back when the school starts again.

I stopped at the bakery on my way out and picked up a couple of cannolis and a forget-the-name pastry for $1 each. Both were excellent, the cannoli was crispy and the choux pastry was light and both had a very tasty filling.
