Restaurants in Somerville, MA

West of Boston, Somerville and neighboring Cambridge are a great mix of culinary tradition and modern savoir faire. If there’s a single dish the area is known for, it’s artisan ice cream, all inspired by Steve’s, which opened in Somerville in 1973 — a tradition of excellence now carried on and enhanced by Christina’s in Cambridge and Rancatore’s in Belmont. A morning meal in Somerville can be as hearty as the full Portuguese Breakfast at Neighborhood Restaurant and Bakery — sausages, cod cakes, meat cakes, shrimp cakes, red beans & rice, home fries and eggs! — or it can be as tender and simple as a Boston cream pie donut from the venerable Lyndell’s Bakery. Or, head over to Cambridge and check out Bagelsauraus, where the slow-fermented bagels are available with unique house-made spreads.
