Giardino's Italian Steak House and Sushi Bar Opens in Former Great Chow Space in Abington

by Marc Hurwitz

A new restaurant with a rather eclectic menu has replaced a popular South Shore spot.

According to a source (@HomebrewedDwarf), Giardino's Italian Steak House and Sushi Bar is now open in Abington, taking over the space on Route 18 where Great Chow had been. The menu at the new eatery includes such items as soups, salads, subs and sandwiches, pasta dishes, pizza, risotto, steak and seafood options, and sushi (including all-you-can-eat sushi), and it looks like the place also has a full liquor license.

Great Chow closed down in March after being in business for approximately 10 years, with the restaurant offering mostly Chinese and Japanese fare. (Another location of Great Chow can be found in the Wollaston section of Quincy.)

The address for this new restaurant in Abington is: Giardino's Italian Steak House and Sushi Bar, 497 Bedford Street (Route 18), Abington, MA, 02351. Its website is at
