It’s that time of year again

It’s that time of year again, when everyone is getting ready for the Holidays.  Even if you aren’t hosting, there is usually lots of cooking and baking going on.  I decided to take a break from of all of that and have lunch at Dumpling Daughter, a cool new casual restaurant in the center of Weston.


Dumpling Daughter is owned by Nadia Liu Spellman, the daughter of Sally Ling (who opened Sally Ling’s on Boston’s waterfront in 1984).    Dumpling Daughter serves Nadia’s favorite – authentic Chinese home cooking – in a very stylish 46-seat restaurant.   There is a young Boston feel with painted concrete floors, industrial chandeliers and a cool modern aesthetic.  Great place to meet friends for a quick lunch, or relaxing dinner.


I had the Chicken dumplings and the Chicken Katsu rice bowl – both were fabulous, and the chicken is organic. You can dine in or take out; it’s a nice dinner alternative to leftover turkey!  Love that Weston is getting new restaurants and boutiques in town – remember to support your local businesses!

Happy Thanksgiving.
