Boston Restaurant Blog -- September, 2005
Thursday, September 15, 2005
Went to the New Bridge Cafe in Chelsea last night. It was as good as always, with the turkey tips being particularly good. I've been going to the New Bridge Cafe for years now, and have yet to have a bad meal. Of course, all I ever get there are steak tips and turkey tips, since that is what this Chelsea restaurant is famous for.
I love the fact that the New Bridge hasn't changed over the years. While other restaurants seem to be going upscale, the New Bridge Cafe sticks to what they do best: They serve great steak tips in an environment that can only be described as Elks Lodge-like. The fake wooden walls and the too-bright lights give the New Bridge an old-school feel to it, and why not? This is a classic neighborhood joint that you rarely find in the Boston area anymore. Once again, two big thumbs-up to the New Bridge Cafe in Chelsea. I hope they never change this place.
If you want the address for the New Bridge Cafe, here it is: New Bridge Cafe, 650 Washington Avenue, Chelsea, MA 02150; the phone number is (781) 884-0134.

This is definitely Boston's best-kept secret. There is no better place in the country to go for incredible food at an incredible price. I had the steak rib combo with a salad and who can beat their salad dressing which by the way is Boston's second best-kept secret. On top of it all I couldn't have asked for a better waiter. He was polite, extremely personable, and knew exactly what to recommend. His service was as good as their food and I would go back just for him (and my steak and salad dressing of course). This place gets ten thumbs up from me and I would recommend it to anybody.

Omg I miss this place so much...I now live in Fl. My favorites are lamb tips, and chicken limone, and their salad dressing...but truly there is nothing that I didn't like at the Newbridge...and the service is great too...your food comes out quickly...so if there is a line to get in you don't wait long before you are seated; it's worth the wait..I'm now searching for this restaurant to purchase a gift for my sister to go with her husband to dinner...I wish I could be there...try this place and you'll see what I mean....Patti

I used to go to the Newbridge all the time. For me the food was great and it was close to home. Just recently though my friend started working there. After seeing the people that work there and the unsanitary conditions that go into prepping the food, I will never eat there ever again.

The New Bridge has the best steak tips that I have ever tasted. I am very fussy when it comes to marinades on meat, but they have the best. Also very good are the country style ribs. They go good with their salad and fresh rolls. JoAnn, from Saugus.

I think the food is way overrated. The servers are disgusting. And when you complain the owner is a jerk. Take your business elsewhere where it's appreciated!

I have be eating there since 1982. I Have brought Body shop workers, my Harvard student friends and their parents and harass New York gourmet Friends and never had anything but great raves From them all (also my g.m. boss from Detroit) He could afford to go to the 4 seasons but preferred the new bridge. If I praised it any more it would be too crowded to get in
