We believe in having a “local everywhere” mindset no matter where we are. In our adopted neighborhood of East Somerville, which is just a stone’s throw from Downtown Boston, dining locally means enjoying cuisine from all over the globe.  The restaurants along East Broadway show influences from El Salvador to Ethiopia, from Sicily to Sichuan, from Brazil back to New England.

It’s an embarrassment of riches, and the neighborhood likes to share. So, every September, the whole city gets invited over for dinner during the East Broadway Foodie Crawl.  Hosted by East Somerville Main Streets, the crawl allows you to sample the fare at over a dozen neighborhood restaurants.

This year, the hungry masses convene on Tuesday, September 10th. Since the final menus are still in the works, we hit some of our favorite places to give you an idea of what’s served every day:

The East End Grille

Bacon Brussles sprouts

Cod sandwich

Creme brulee

Gauchao Brazilian Cuisine

The Foodie Crawl is easy to get to: the Orange Line drops you off at Sullivan Square, at one end of the East Broadway strip, and the 89, 90, and 101 buses run right along the route.  For more info and tickets, go here.
