One keen-eyed observer noticed that fixtures and furniture had been removed from the former froyo shop – […]


MoMos in Magoun

We live in a strange time, when a Kickstarter campaign to make a single bowl of potato salad raises more than $55,000 but a local restauranteur hoping to bring a new style of food to our city comes up short of her $15,000 fundraising goal. This was the situation Sophiya Thakali found herself in last month after […]


New Year’s Day Best of Brunches

Have your plans for tonight locked down, but nowhere to go come the early bright sunshine of tomorrow?

Hold that Thought!

Remember what we said about that nice, sunny Summer weather finally kicking off? Well … we might have jumped the gun on that. Unfortunately, early weather reports call for rain tomorrow, so tomorrow’s Taste of Somerville has been delayed until next Wednesday, June 11th.
