Gillette Stadium Views, Television History Fun at CBS Scene, Patriot Place, Foxboro, Mass.

CBS Scene at Patriot Place, next to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Mass., scores a dining out touchdown with its one-of-kind restaurant and bar.

The 15,000 sq. ft. CBS Scene seems larger than life with three levels of lunch and dinner dining, and 135 SONY Plasma, LCD and graphic projector displays (including table side televisions) playing the best of 75-plus years of CBS radio and television entertainment, sports and news programming.

It's a great place to watch the New England Patriots through the window less than 100 years away or on television, but for old-time TV nuts like us, we enjoyed watching "I Love Lucy" while chowing down on delicious grilled meat loaf sandwiches, New England clam chowder, wood fired heart oven pizza, crispy fries and mac and cheese. Additionally, the huge bar specializes in specialty drinks, beers, white, red and dessert wines, and cognac, port, sherry. In the warmer weather,  an outdoor terrace provides additional commanding views of Gillette Stadium.

With those incredible views of Gillette Stadium, a retail store selling CBS merchandise and a 60-foot spiral staircase structure in the shape of CBS's trademark eye connecting everything, CBS Scene is quite a scene!

Although CBS Scene is popular with comfort food offerings (steak tips, fish and chips, nachos, BBQ pork ribs, lobster BLT etc.), the chance to go upscale is here, too, with, as examples, maple glazed, cedar-planked roasted Scottish salmon; and citrus scallop salad.

Although cynics (that haven't even been here!) suspect it's a tourist trap, the truth is that CBS Scene serves excellent food -- much of it locally-sourced, including the seafood.

All in all, the great location, appealing design and ambiance, and terrific food help land CBS Scene in the Superbowl of  fabulous local restaurants.
