==Union Square, * [[Somerville, MA== Union Square is not on the Red Line, so it's a bit off the beaten path. It is only a 15 minute walk from the Sullivan Square Orange Line station, and there are [ MBTA] buses arriving from Central, Harvard, Porter, Davis, Lechmere, and Sullivan Square T stops. (It's a nice walk in good weather from the West, but the neighborhoods to the East are less nice. There are a number lots of Brazilian restaurants and stores around, including a Brazilian butcher-slash-convenience store. The Brazilian community extends to Inman Square (Cambridge) and there's another pocket in Allston. There's also Indian, Mexican, and Peruvian fare here. It's a nice, brick-based New England intersection of many roads, but there's not enough public space for pedestrians to linger. ---- The '''Neighborhood Restaurant and Bakery''' is worth visiting Union Square for, especially in the summer months. There's an overhead grape arbor with real fruit growing on it. There's a large breakfast/brunch menu, and very colorful outdoor decor. The menu also includes some Brazilian fare, as well as alcoholic drinks. Check their web site for a full menu and specials. :Neighborhood Restaurant and Bakery:'''Cash only.''':617-628-2151 / 617-623-9710:25 Bow St., Somerville, MA:7am-4pm (7 days) ---- Also handy for visitors and locals: '''Red House'''. A New England-style Chinese restaurant (take-out only). Good food, clean kitchen (you can watch them prepare your food through a window in the waiting area), and open late. Founded in 1977. Recommended by Ben Affleck. :Red House:617-666-4300:617-666-4301:24 Union Square, Somerville, MA 02143:Sun-Thu 11am-1:30am:Fri-Sat 11am-2am:Delivery 11:00am-1:30am, to Somerville, Cambride, Charlestown, and parts of :Medford. Mastercard, Visa, Discover, cash. No checks. ==Davis Square, Somerville, MA== This is a great late-night summer hangout, especially given that J.P. Licks is here. (That would be a trendy local ice cream shop, also seen on Newbury Street in Boston.) It's right on the Red Line, and also a major bus transfer point. Tons of college folk linger in the brick plaza. The Sommerville Theatre doubles as a second-run movie house and music venue. Of note: * The Someday Cafe, featured in a song by Jim's Big Ego.* Redbones, a local favorite for meaty grill food. Secondary link: * [ Official Sommerville site (squares page)]
