A brasserie-tavern hybrid, Foundry on Elm brings the best of seasonal New England fare to Davis Square diners via a menu of refined, fresh food - and proper ale to go along with it. The restaurant pays tribute to the modern day craft worker by celebrating the farmers, brewers and winemakers that created the products featured on the menu and wine list.

The cavernous dining room - it can comfortably accommodate more than 150 people - features a long, marble-topped bar, cushy, deep red banquettes, and black and white mosaic tiled floor, all of which lend themselves to a warm, welcoming space that's got broad appeal. Students, local professionals and families are flocking to the Somerville eatery for dinner, lunch and brunch.
