Helping to move our daughter and her family, so after a long day of packing, it was great to sit down to a delicious meal at Cuisinett. I had the Seafood Stew Basquaise with mussels, shrimp and salmon. VERY yummy!

One of our staples when we lived in Belmont. Great food and friendly service! We stop by whenever we are in the area. We've had the duck salad, quiche Lorraine, mussels and pork chop. All great! Their bread pudding is also delicious.
