The BSFW blog offers a periodic airing of our staff's observations and musings about things we find in our market and, frankly, can't live without. This is not a dispensing of erudite information from high on the mount; this is us sharing with you the aspects of the fine wine, craft brew and gourmet worlds that pique our interest.
This congenial approach is something we take seriously - so please feel free to comment! Afterall,it's our customers that inspire us to do what we love to do - and do it even better than before at every opportunity.
We saw several familiar faces (hi, neighbor!) and many, many new ones in the crowds at last night's Taste of Somerville - a real treat this year, we have to admit.
It's not often we have the occasion to participate in an off-site, community-focused event. (Being so small an outfit, it's hard for us to get away.) But we jump at the chance to celebrate some of the finest establishments in our fine city, the most densely populated one in New England, each June at Taste (always on a Tuesday night).
This year's event happened to fall on the heels of the Boston Globe's recent article about how magical Cambridge is (compared to Boston) when it comes to fine establishments. We posted on our Facebook page our thoughts that here in Somerville we're strutting some important stuff, too. After last night's soiree, we feel even more strongly this is the case - and "Camberville" certainly is a unique place in Middlesex County.
What are some of your favorite Somerville spots? Do you stay local to Ball Square or do you venture to Union, Davis, Teele and beyond?
