Still need Birthday dinner help :/

What about Dali? Tapas are very festive, the atmosphere is great, and you can sip on sangrias.

Fasika, Somerville

Thanks for sharing! I live in JP and was wondering what happened to Fasika. Last I heard they were moving to Centre St, I didn't know they were going to Somerville!

We Need Vegetarian Cuisine!


My husband and I are vegetarian and had similar feelings when we moved here. A gourmet option in Jamaica Plain is the vegetarian tasting menu at Ten Tables. I don't think it is on the menu but it is offered every night of the week except one night (wed.? - Call ahead and ask). It is a four course prix fixe for $25 and is perfect for special occasions.

Centre St Cafe in JP also has some good veggie options. For a destination lunch place - Common Ground Cafe in Dorchester has wonderful smoothies and makes their own spelt bread, muffins and other items. It is run by some back-to-the Earth kind of cult. I don't get involved in their philosophy. Just eat their food!

For the best Italian that always has some veggie options - try Sweet Basil in Needham. The pesto they give you for free with your bread alone is worth the trip to the burbs.
