COME ON IN!
With a deep history and heritage, the community of Foxborough, Mass. has grown throughout the years to what is now a centerpiece for entertainment, dining, family, and a championship drive. Our restaurant equals those sentiments by connecting its past with a drive towards the future.
Why "UNION STRAW" you may ask? Those familiar with the history of Foxborough know that this gem of Norfolk County was once deemed the "Straw Hat Capitol of the World" as the Union Straw Works was headquartered just a couple blocks away off nearby Wall Street. This massive factory was home to thousands of workers and helped establish the town as a major player in commerce and industry before the facility unfortunately burned to the ground in late May of 1900.
UNION STRAW is a throwback to yesteryear in name alone, as this new restaurant is full of all the bells and whistles that you would look for in a modern hospitality space.
We knew there was some proud tradition between the walls, but we had no clue what was behind them. Our dining room and kitchen was the previous site for the Foxborough American Legion Post 93 for decades. We uncovered some amazing trussed beams in the ceiling during our renovation. Astounded that they had been covered for so many years, we really took these great structural items and built our restaurant by letting the space dictate what it wanted to be. In doing so, we allowed the menu to evolve the same way. Comfort food and family favorites with a rustic flair.
