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.
