When we're in the mood for something a bit different, we take the family over to Flatbread Pizza in Bedford. They offer a family-friendly (and civic-minded) organic food, locally grown. Even the beers are local.
The decor reminds me of a hunting lodge - lots of wood, high ceilings, fire roaring, and odd decorations. Check out the ceiling lights.
While you can get the basic Pepperoni Pizza if you want, the Weekly Pizza Specials are our highlight. There are always 2: one meat and one veggie. The carne ones we especially liked were The Hamburger Pizza with ground beef, ketchup, mustard, onions and lettuce; the Reuben with Pastrami, Cheese, sauerkraut and Russian Dressing; and the Taco Pizza with taco meat, cheddar cheese, lettuce, olives, and crushed tortilla chips. (I could be a bit off on these -- I'm doing it from memory)
They often host fundraisers for local charities or schools during the week. They hosted one for my daughter's elementary school a few years ago, with a portion of the proceeds going to the school.
The farms that they get the produce from are listed on plaques near the kitchen, with farms from Lexington, MA, Bedford, Groton, and New Hampshire most often. They also grow some produce on site.
Occasionally they host live music. We've been to a few summer-time shows on Wednesday nights and they've been great, if loud (we were right next to the stage)
The organic salad is a favorite of my wife and daughter. Its pretty big. We also recommend the specialty drinks from the bar -- which also have seasonal specials. The taps rotate, as well, so don't get to comfortable with one particular local brew (Long Trail Pale Ale?) as it might not be there next time.
Pizzas are thin -- real thin. And they aren't super filling, but pack a lot of taste. I don't particularly care for the pepperoni, but the sausage is great. In fact, one of the things we always order is a large Cheese and Herb pizza (no sauce) with sausage. It's custom, but tastes great.
There are usually a good number of kids around. They can sit on the bench in front of the oven and watch the pizzas being made and cooked, or play with a piece of pizza dough, or color.
