Places recently visited: ==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 longish 15 minute walk from Harvard Square or Porter the Sullivan SquareOrange 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: * [ Officeal Sommerville site (squares page)] ==Inman Square, Cambridge, MA== Not on the Red Line; accessible by a longish walk from Harvard or Central Square, or by [ MBTA] bus. Rosie's Bakery, Cambridge Store [] If you've found Mr. or Ms. Right, they do wedding cakes, but of course have a good selection of yummy deserts for Mr. and Ms. Right Now. (Including the Chocolate Orgasm Brownie.) For travellers on the Red Line, it's probably easier to visit their store in South Station, in Boston. Midwest Grill. Brazillian BBQ. Mid-range. All you can eat. Rodizu (meat on a sword). >> I think probably the best Indian place in Cambridge is Punjabi Dhaba, in Inman Sq. I'd feel better recommending that over Border India, especially since we have so many Central Sq. listings already. It's also a unique and fun place, insanely cheap, and open LATE. -Nickpest 14:02, 8 Aug 2004 (EDT) << ==Kendall Square== Emma's Pizza. Thin crust.
Which Kendall Square am I in?
