Farm Grill is a cafeteria style Greek restaurant in Newton; You can peruse all the tasty offerings in the large glass case and order at the register. Your food will come to you on a tray. There was four of us there for a post mini-golf dinner (R won) and lots of standard Greek fare was ordered: lamb kabobs, pastitiso, taramasalata, eggplant salad, grape leaves, potatoes and squash. It was all good; about the same, or slightly better than food at the ubiquitous summer Greek festivals. However, one dish stood out, the octopus salad. It was amazing; sliced thick, and marinated in olive oil and lemon. It achieved the perfect texture, a satisfying chew, without being rubbery, and a happy balance of oil and acid. I finished the portion that came on my appetizer sampler plate and contemplated getting another order to take home for later.
