Located on the edge of Somerville, right at the Cambridge border, is Bergamot restaurant. The neighborhood favorite attracted food lovers from all over the Boston area, and even the country, to the quiet corner of Beacon Street. I first saw Bergamot in passing when I was relatively new to the area. I assumed it was a tea cafe simply based on the name and whimsical “bee” on their sign. My judgment was so wrong.
At the time, I didn’t realize that Bergamot is a great spot for classy and comfortable dining serving progressive American cuisine with global influences. They received several awards, including Boston’s Top 50 restaurants, number nine ranking on new American cuisine in the country, and number one in the city of Somerville. Bergamot has quite the buzz!
