Named for both the flower and the fruit, Bergamot Restaurant in Somerville is the collaborative effort from chef Keith Pooler and General Manager Servio Garcia. From the semi-open kitchen and out into the warm, honey-hued dining room comes progressive American cuisine. The dishes, which are ingredient-driven with a focus on local product and seasonality, will occasionally (i.e. whenever Pooler wants to have a little fun) pull from French, Asian, Latin American and Mediterranean culinary traditions.

Bergamot, which makes its home in the Beacon Street storefront that most recently housed EVOO, features a full bar with a wide array of both classic and modern cocktails in addition to wine and beer.
