Marathon Restaurant Review

: This dressed-up offspring of the locally-owned eatery offers consistently good food, big windows for people-watching, a late-night happy hour and brunch on the weekends. We recommend the baked mac ‘n’ cheese, and the locally-inspired cheesesteak spring rolls. Try the updated chopped salad, with Gorgonzola, endive and pears; a salmon burger with spinach and Swiss; or the old-fashioned meatloaf with two sides. In a town where entrées tend to hover in the high 20s and beyond, the comfort of a $16.95 organic roast turkey with chestnut bread pudding is a welcome option.
