Bergamout

Bergamot may look like the quintessential neighborhood restaurant, but appearances can be deceiving. Sophistication abounds here: a dash of rooibos syrup rounding out a cocktail, a hint of smoke in a creamy cauliflower soup, and a bar-only grilled cheese constructed of buttery brioche that’s been stuffed with lobster, gooey cheddar, and scallions.

Bergamot, 118 Beacon St., Somerville, 617-576-7700, bergamotrestaurant.com.

The Butcher Shop

This wine bar pairs the heart of a steakhouse (choice rib-eyes, racks of lamb) with the soul of a Barbara Lynch restaurant. That means silky pâtés, hearty pastas, and desserts begging for a glass of carefully chosen moscato.
