Boston Magazine Highlights Somerville's 'So Hot' Restaurant Scene
Somerville is "shaping up to be one of the best and brightest culinary destinations in town," the magazine's website says.
The magazine points to some new restaurants and food destinations coming to town in the near future:
- Cafe Tango, which will open underneath the Tango Society of Boston at 16 Bow Street in Union Square.
- M.F. Dulock Pasture Raised Meats, which is moving in next to the former Chocolate Tarte space on Highland Avenue.
- The Bearded Pig, a BBQ company that may be moving into a Union Square space this summer.
Meanwhile, the magazine lists some other trendy newbies in town: Casa B, Backbar and the Painted Burro, in addition to "already established stars" such as Bergamot, Posto and Highland Kitchen (which was named best place to get dinner in Somerville by Patch readers).
A lot of the action seems to be happening in Union Square, including the new outdoor wine and cheese market, Swirl & Slice, that's coming to the neighborhood this summer.
The magazine doesn't mention La Brasa, the brainchild of Daniel Bojorquez, a protoge of Frank McClelland and winner of "Chopped" on The Food Network, who at last glance was expected to open his South American-influenced restaurant on East Broadway this spring.
Boston Restaurant Talk reported that Fortissimo, a coffeehouse and bakery, could be opening as soon as this month in the Somerville Avenue space occupied by International Market.
