Welcome to the Neighborhood: Balani

July 25, 2018 - 469 Moody Street (article from The Waltham Channel)

An eclectic new restaurant is now open for dinner at 469 Moody Street in the former Raffaele’s location. The rotating menu includes quirky comfort food classics that “sound a little weirder than they are” on the menu, according to Balani owner Dave Becker.


The offerings include donut holes, fried chicken, pizza, flatbreads, burgers and poutine. But don’t be surprised if South American empanadas and Vietnamese pho turn up. Mains run from $20–29, and Balani is open from 5:00 to 10:00 p.m. Tuesday to Sunday. Becker has earned acclaim with his other two restaurants, Sweet Basil in Needham and Juniper in Wellesley. Laid back in his approach, Becker stenciled a makeshift sign when Balani first opened a little while back. The final sign is on the way... Good luck! Photo: Balani (Article/ The Waltham Channel)
