Good restaurants near Somerville Theater
I'm looking for good places within walking distance or a short drive to the theater. I love all kinds of ethnic foods. Looking for something a little different.
re: Bob Dobalina
Yep, what Bob said. Also, since you said 'drive', two close-by additions:
* Gran Gusto (Huron Village) - some of the best Neapolitan-style pizza I've had outside Italy, everything else is very good, free parking.
* Tu y Yo (Powderhouse Circle) - fairly refined Southern Mexican cuisine in a fun setting. Not as good as CH darling Angela's in Eastie, but definitely a marked step up from your run-of-the-mill Boston taco joint.
You have several options in Davis Square and vicinity. A few that come to mind are Gargoyles (a bit upscale, creative cuisine), Redbones (barbecue), Martsa on Elm (Tibetan), and Namaskar (Indian.) A little further afield, on Mass Ave. near Porter, is Cafe Barada (Lebanese), a ten-minute walk at most.
Out of the Blue Restaurant, almost next door to Gargoyles. Good seafood with an Italian accent.

Namaskar, Indian, and Martsa on Elm, Tibetan are across the street from each other and both very good.
