There is a part of us (mainly me) that really has a weakness for quality commercial restaurants and products that really deliver good value, minimum pretension and good quality and variety in their food, wine and/or spirits. This impulse led us (mainly me) to seek out Wahlburgers the high end burger outpost in Hingham owned by Chef Paul Wahlberg and his brothers Hollywood superstar Mark Wahlberg and Donnie who has had a noteworthy career as a music, film and television performer. The restaurant has also generated a reality show of the same name on A & E featuring the behind the scenes operations of the Hingham restaurant.
Lynn likes excitement and novelty which the crowded, bustling restaurant had in spades. What was unexpected was the high quality and general variety of the food. Lynn had a Haddock sandwich which she said had great flavor and was lightly fried with panko. Our grand kids enjoyed the Chicken Fingers and "Alma's Macaroni" (Alma is Mother Wahlberg). The restaurant had some great offbeat offerings for vegetarians such as the Portabello Capped Mushroom Burger which I had and found juicy and savory. If you are watching your carbs you can get the burgers with lettuce wraps instead of the bread.
