Somerville’s Assembly Row development is a capitalism fever dream, filled with visions of LEGO sculptures, pricey candles, cut-rate Air Jordans, and Le Creuset Dutch ovens in soon-to-be-discontinued colors. As such, you might find yourself spending a bit of time there around the holidays, knocking some gifts off of your to-buy list.
When it’s time to refuel, there are some good eating and drinking options in the area. Here are a dozen to get you through the nightmare that is December at an outdoor shopping mall.
(Note: There’s also a brand new Ruth’s Chris Steak House at Assembly Row; it’s a bit too new to be added to a “best of” collection like this, but those who already know they’re Ruth’s Chris fans will probably want to check it out.)
