My Dinner at The Madrona Tree in Arlington, MA

Recently, I was in Boston to see Bruce Springsteen in concert.  As usual, it was an amazing show and gave me some good inspiration for my book.

While there, I checked out The Madrona Tree, a new organic restaurant in Arlington, a suburb of Boston that is located about 20 minutes outside of the city.

The Madrona Tree focuses on local, organic and sustainable ingredients, and the restaurant’s menu has a slight Lebanese twist to it.

The Madrona Tree also recycles its waste, recycle its cooking oil (which gets made into biofuel), uses as many eco-friendly products as possible, and has its website powered by 100% wind energy.

Here are a few of the dishes that we had:






The food was fresh and had great taste, the service was excellent, and the atmosphere was very casual and relaxed.

Without a question, I’ll be going back to The Madrona Tree the next time I am in Boston.
