Aug 25, 2023

Not sure where to grab a bite to eat? With lots of options around the Taunton area, it can be difficult to choose.

If you’re having a hard time, we’re here to help you narrow it down.

We've compiled a list of meal deals, special events, and mouth-watering offerings at local eateries and markets to consider when planning your next night on the town, or a quick stop for a tasty treat.

This week, we've got patio dining, some updates to specials, menus and hours, a local bakery marking a milestone, and even some live music announcements.

Let's dig in:

As of June 5, the patio is open at The Pearl, 76 Weir St., Taunton. While you’re enjoying dining al fresco, you can also try their new lunch menu. They’ve got rotating soup specials, with Portuguese soup available every day, as well as wraps, salads, flatbreads, sandwiches and entrees served with fries or rice. Among the many offerings, they’ve got a Portuguese wrap (served with fries), a pork Alentejana sandwich (also served with fries), customizable flatbread toppings, and a chicken Mozambique rice bowl.

If you can't get enough of the specials at Brack's Grille & Tap, 2097 Bay St., Taunton, we’ve got good news: their specials are now monthly. So all month long you can enjoy your favorites. Drink specials are peach sangria, and a Brack's Relaxer, with coconut rum, vodka, peach schnapps, a mix of pineapple and cranberry juice, and a dash of grenadine. Appetizers include: cordon bleu flatbread, topped with alfredo sauce, ham, grilled chicken, and a blend of cheeses; and cheeseburger poutine, with crispy fries topped with ground beef, breaded cheese curds, shredded lettuce, tomatoes, onions and pickles, and drizzled with thousand island dressing. Entrees include a lobster roll and chowder; the roll is served on a toasted brioche roll with fries. For dessert, try the hazelnut crunch cake, layered with creamy hazelnut frosting and crushed hazelnuts.
