the Concord area where he grew up and bring to the community a restaurant that is worthy of an epicurean outing yet comfortable enough for a casual dinner.The vision for 80 Thoreau is one that has grown and evolved over the years since owners Ian Calhoun and Vincent Vela first met in college and vowed to open a restaurant. Their experiences cooking, serving, bartending, and managing have formed the basis for the hospitality at 80 Thoreau. The careful balancing of 80 Thoreau’s fine-dining pedigree and laid-back temperament are evident in every element of the restaurant.

Local from Boston

Excellent service but noisy atmosphere. The food is outstanding and a good wine selection. Very good bartenders, a small bar with a wide variety of cocktails. A great place to go on special occasions as it is a bit pricey.

Snobby owners. Had to wait 30 minutes with a reservation to place order. When we complained to Vincent the owner, he told us we can leave and pointed to the door. It was my wife's birthday. Horrible way to treat your patrons.

I cannot recommend 80 Thoreau more highly. It is clear how much effort and thought has been put into every aspect of the restaurant - from the sources of their food (all local) to the decor (a modern take on local New England style and history). The service is great - attentive but never intrusive. The wine list is excellent, and their menu rotates regularly depending on what is fresh and in season. It's also great to be able to see the activity in the kitchen from your seat. They also take mixology VERY seriously and it shows in the extremely high caliber of the cocktails they serve. If you're in Boston, this restaurant is well worth the short drive to the suburbs - you won't be disappointed!
