Two New Dining Spots Open in Somerville and Boston

Both Boston and Somerville are getting two new local bar/restaurants this week as the Foundry on Elm opens in Davis Square and Darryl's Corner Bar & Kitchen opens on Columbus Ave in Boston.

The folks behind the Independent in Union Square bring you The Foundry on Elm, which opened to the public last week. The Foundry is replacing the old Bowl and Board and Jimmy Tingle Theater location. The Foundry is finally bringing back the classic cocktails and food that those of us in Boston and Cambridge have enjoyed for awhile, such as classic cocktails and poutine. Have I mentioned I love poutine?

The Foundry is not just for the swanky cocktail drinkers - this two floor bar is also offering 32 local and Belgium beers on tap. The menu offers items such as confit pork belly and a raw bar featuring scallop ceviche and jonah crab claws. (I want the basic, but delicious roast chicken with fingerlings and kale).

Foundry on Elm is located 255 Elm St in Somerville and is open daily until 1:00 a.m. For more information, click here.

Darryl's Corner Bar brings a nice hangout to the South End. Darryl's give me the feeling with its simple (but yummy) menu that this is the place where everyone will now your name. Darryl's offers a variety of classic drinks and their own versions (I thought the mimosa was funny of PBR and OJ). The menu has good bar food like fried calamari, pulled pork sandwiches and lobster rolls. Darryl's also offers a late night menu from 11:00pm-1:00am. - a nice touch for those of us who had too many martinis down the street.

Darryl's Corner Bar & Kitchen is located at 604 Columbus Ave, Boston. For more information, click here.
