If you could wave your magic wand sometime in 2013 and create a business that would serve the Somerville community, what would it be?
In 2012, the city saw a bunch of openings, including, but by no means limited to, Painted Burro, a new Mexican restaurant, Davis Square Theatre, a revamped performances space, and RE/MAX Heritage Green, a real estate office that specializes in energy efficient homes.
A number of restaurants and cafes opened, including Fortissimo, a coffee shop in Union Square. Union Square also saw the opening of a non-coffee shop, Counter Culture Coffee, a wholesaler that offers classes and "cuppings" to the public.
Somerville is always a busy place for restaurant openings, and 2013 is gearing up to be an exciting year, with Bronwyn and a new venture by Oleana's owner expected to start serving meals in the upcoming year.
But Man cannot live on bread and tapas made from locally sourced ingredients alone (actually, he probably can). What other business would you like to see come to Somerville in 2013? A bookstore? A hardware store? A Trader Joe's?
