Lawrence >Food & Dining > Teller's
Teller's has gone downhill. We used to love Teller's. Went for lunch this week and it was disappointing, to say the least. Not much to choose from for lunch anymore. My compadre had the Beef and Talleggio Sandwich, which was a very thick piece of very chewy and very fatty beef on a roll. After taking it apart, he only found 3 or 4 bites edible. Did the waitress ask why he left a $9 sandwich on his plate? No. With so many other places to choose from, I doubt that we'll give Teller's another shot.
Not a place for the family.. My wife, son, and I went to Teller's for there brunch buffet. The service was fine and the food was decent. I was enjoying my meal and asked the waitress if I could get another milk for my son. She rolled her eyes and said "ok, but this isn't really a place for children. You might consider getting a baby sitter the next time you come here." Who gets a baby sitter for Sunday brunch? My son was well behaved but they acted like I brought in a disease.
A touch of class on Mass. While the food is very good, the most unique thing about Teller's is the atmosphere. There are little things to remind you of the building's history, like the iron teller gates separating the bar from the dining area. The main dining area is somewhat loud due to the tall ceilings, but the two balconies at the back of the restaurant give a bird's eye view of the main dining area. Service has always been prompt. A fun, classy joint.
Serving traditional Italian fare in a former bank building..
The building was at one time a bank, complete with high-rise ceilings and wooden decor. Not much has changed, except for the addition of a full-service bar and an open kitchen. Perfect for a business lunch or big family dinners, the atmosphere borders on fine dining without losing its casual feel.
Teller's really brings them in with humbly priced, hand-tossed pizzas and a huge selection of alcoholic beverages. The stone oven-baked pizzas work well topped with a marinara sauce. A customer favorite, the tortellini arrabbiata consists of cheese stuffed tortellini smothered in spicy tomato cream sauce. While the sauce may be neither creamy nor spicy enough for seasoned lovers of such a dish, the flavor is good and the portion healthy. For those who like to top their dinners off with a sweet drink, there's the key lime pie martini, complete with a graham cracker crust on the rim.
