Dirt Cheap Fine Dining
WECO has taken the local dine-in food scene by storm, and has become a favorite at households all over Newton. It's basically a really reasonably priced chef service featuring food by Chef Gavin Lambert, formerly of West Concord's Woods Hill Table. WECO (short for West Concord) has a fixed menu, with a limited number of farm to table meals Monday-Friday, and a completely novel pricing model. Diners are charged for the cost of food and, a $6 doorstep delivery fee. Labor is excluded; any additional amount paid by diners goes to the WECO chefs and team. The upcoming week's menu is released at 4:30 PM on Thursdays. Diners are notified Friday as to whether they made the dinner list for the week, and on which days. (You can sign up for a meal on one day, or up to all five days.) Sign up for WECO's newsletter on their website.
