The latest Natick, MA business news:
Cilicia getting closer
The sign for Cilicia Mediterranean Market is up at 7 North Main St, and the brown paper is coming down as interior work gets underway. Word on the street is that the former Samra market, which closed its previous location further north on Main Street in December, could open as soon as June.
Natick restaurants getting busier indoors
We’d planned to eat under the Dolphin Seafood tent last weekend in Natick Center, but then it rained and rained, with unfriendly temps, so we braved it and headed indoors for dinner.
Our meals were delicious, starting with a generous portion of crispy calamari in rings and with tentacles. We ordered scrod, done nicely with a side of some of the freshest mix vegetables we’ve seen in a while, and flavorful lobster ravioli, oozing with sauce that we dipped our veggies in, too.
Among our beverages was a Tropicalsphere, a juicy cocktail with a round ice cube in the middle to keep it fun and chilled.
The staff, masked, was friendly and efficient.

Beyond Natick: Visiting Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club in Brewster, Cape Cod
Demand is pent up, temperatures are trending up, and with 50% of Massachusetts fully vaccinated, spirits are up. Everybody is ready to travel again. It feels important for these first forays back out into the world to be successful, easy, fun. At the family-friendly Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club on Cape Cod in Brewster, the 429-acre property’s private beach, 4 pool areas open to guests, 9 tennis courts, 6 pickleball courts, and 7 restaurants (plus room service) are ready to go. So is the line-up of planned summer activities for the kids, along with the manicured and challenging 18-hole golf course, the only Nicklaus-designed links on the Cape. There’s also a lineup of Private Experiences such as beach fires, archery, and picnics.
Ocean Edge is all primped and polished and ready to have its “hot resort” summer.
We were invited to visit the 337-room resort as part of a press tour. Because we have the sense we were born with, we said yes and set out for the mid-Cape location, a sub two-hour drive from Natick. Our room, meals, and excursion expenses were paid for by Ocean Edge.
