New Eateries Heat Up Downtown Somerville Dining Scene

The Salad House, a fast-casual restaurant specializing in fresh customized and signature salads, is just one of several new eateries and cafes that have recently opened downtown, with several more slated to open soon—including Somerset County’s first brewpub.

“Downtown Somerville has certainly earned its reputation as a foodie destination, with more than 45 popular restaurants and eateries to please every palate,” said Beth Anne MacDonald, executive director of the Downtown Somerville Alliance. “You can eat your way around the world here from Greek, Asian, Cuban, New American, French-inspired, Italian, Irish, and more, but this year is particularly exciting because we’ve got several new concept restaurants and cafes that will add some new flavor to the downtown.”

The Salad House joins several newly-opened restaurants in the downtown area including Kuay Tiew Noodles and More, serving authentic cuisine; and Fresh Tiki Bar, a café and juice bar specializing in smoothy bowls, fresh fruit smoothies, juices, and more. Kuay Tiew opened in late 2017, and its signature noodle, soup, and rice dishes are garnering rave reviews.
Slated to open this spring are the Village Brewing Company, Somerset County’s first brewpub, serving its own micro brews and progressive American cuisine; and Grumpy Bobas, a bubble tea café, offering premium customizable fruit and milk teas using whole and organic ingredients whenever possible. “We’re so excited to bring our one-of-a-kind bubble teas to Somerville,” said Grumpy Bobas owner Yanshu Liu. “Somerville is such an eclectic downtown, with so many small, independent businesses offering unique products and experiences. We think we’ll fit right in.”
