Foundry on Elm Review

A friend and I grabbed lunch today at Foundry on Elm in Davis Square. Though the decor was great (it reminded us both of Eastern Standard), the food was so-so.

Foundry on Elm has been open for about a month. As we blogged about before, the restaurant/bar took over the old space at Bowl and Board and the Jimmy Tingle Theater. The bar and and menu definitely has a french bistro feel, with poutine, shellfish and steak frits on the menu. The servers were fine, but our ham and cheese sandwiches were both brought out cold and the cheese was unfortunately not fully melted. The poutine appetizer was just the right size, but the gravy could have been a little less watery. Prices were reasonable.

Unfortunately, we didn't grab any cocktails, but I think Foundry just may be good for just that.
Foundry on Elm
is located at 255 Elm Street, Somerville.
