NOTE from Chef Tom

Lincoln, Massachusetts has always been a special place for me. I’m a closet Revolutionary War buff, so I have always been drawn to the rural landscape. When Ruth and I lived in Cambridge and our children were young, we often escaped to Drumlin Farm and the Community Gardens at Codman when we needed a place to run around or get our hands in the dirt.

We’ve been making our life in Sudbury for almost ten years now, and the chance to bring a restaurant to Lincoln is an exciting opportunity. We look forward to contributing to the special character and community that makes this town the special place that it is.

Real is the culmination of a lifelong dream. Real is an honest approach to food that reflects the 20 year journey that Ruth and I have taken in the kitchen. We have created a menu that is approachable, sophisticated and contemporary. It is fresh, seasonal, and, at times, unintentionally healthy.

Where our food comes from and how it gets to the table are what I have made my life about.

It’s a privilege to host you. We hope to see you soon.
