This week enjoy dinner at EVOO:

"As “offbeat” as it is “off the beaten path”, this “South End–esque Somerville find” turns fundamentally “simple dishes” into “marvelous”, “arty” Eclectic “feasts” that “burst with goodness” (“try the Chinese Box – it’s like opening a Christmas present”) thanks to a “husband-and-wife team” as “dedicated to supporting local farmers” as they are to making the “Harvard intellectuals” who fill the “wide-open” yet “sedate” dining room “feel at home”; P.S. “the tasting menu is worth the splurge.”" - Zagat.com

"Somerville has come a long way from its meat-and-potatoes past, as a population overflow from Cambridge turned it into a beehive for academics, writers, artists, hipsters and high-tech-bonus babies. Chef-owner Peter McCarthy was one of the pioneers in its culinary awakening, and he still keeps the town on its toes. In an airy and pomp-free room designed by Sandra Fairbank, McCarthy works multi-culti magic with New England's bounty from land and sea. At any given time, the cuisines of Santa Fe, Tokyo, Veracruz, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Provence may all be in evidence; it's the kitchen's penchant for updating age-old ethnic staples with drop-dead technique that makes each shine. Take the cornmeal-fried oysters. Fried with the light-handed deftness of tempura, their richness is both undercut and complemented by goat cheese fondue and apple-bacon salsa. Or chicken: McCarthy is one of the few who strives to make it new each season---for instance, lending it neo-Southern cred by smoking and pulling it, then pairing it with a corn waffle and pepper slaw. And the signature espresso-cardamom pot de crème is not to be missed. Perhaps best of all, McCarthy’s commitment to the local sustainable agriculture movement means you’re not only eating well, you’re doing good." - Gayot.com
