Facebook Poll: Best Restaurants in Cambridge


45 1/2 Mount Auburn St, Cambridge, MA 02138

Allie Beauchesne: The pan-seared sea scallops at Daedalus ... always cooked perfectly. And everything tastes better on a roof deck. FACT.

All Star Sandwich Bar

1245 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02139

Josh Bob: My favorite dish is the poutine at All-Star Sandwich Bar. I know it's not quite haute cuisine, but it is quite tasty!

Garden At The Cellar

991 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138

Siena Napoleon: Charcuterie platter and potato leek soup from the Garden at the Cellar. Sooo yummy!

The Asgard

350 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02139

Robyn Linden: The Asgard does awesome nachos with spinach and artichoke dip. It's an appetizer addict's dream.


30 Dunster St, Cambridge, MA 02138

Gina Cravedi: The molten chocolate cake at Finale is to die for! Perfectly done, crispy on the outside and molten on the inside.


1193 Cambridge St, Cambridge, MA 02139

Leanne Drown: Fried oysters at Tupelo, so juicy and plump! (Or pretty much anything else they serve.)

The Friendly Toast

1 Kendall Sq, Cambridge, MA 02139

Pam Aghababian: Hansel and Gretel waffle at the Friendly Toast. I'd never thought to use pomegranate molasses on pancakes before, but now it's a favorite use!

UpStairs on the Square

91 Winthrop St, Cambridge, MA 02138

OLGA: One of my favorites--creamy tomato soup and farm house cheddar grilled cheese from UpStairs on the Square. Something about the dish and the chandeliers/ the space that make even a dreary, rainy day 10 times better.


1 Bennett St (Charles Hotel), Cambridge, MA 02138

Angela Pettersen: All the pasta at Rialto--especially the gnocchi. They are like fluffy pillows dancing in your mouth!

Pepper Sky's Thai Sensation

20 Pearl St, Cambridge, MA 02139

Jennifer Fortin: Spicy pad thai at Pepper Sky's in Central Square, because it's delicious and makes my mouth feel like it's on fire; then I drink a lot of healthy water.

Border Cafe

32 Church St, Cambridge, MA 02138

Josephine Cruz: Mesquite grilled salmon salad at Border Cafe, 'cause I love the Mexican food. Aye aye aye!


18 Eliot St, Cambridge, MA 02138

Whitney Rauschenbach: Definitely the Khara Masala Balti chicken or lamb Vindaloo at Tanjore--best Indian around.

Grafton Street Pub & Grill

1230 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02138

George Herz: The fried chicken with mashed potatoes peas and gravy at Grafton Street. It's a classic comfort food dish done in an upscale way, and when combined with the atmosphere, you can't beat it.


1920 Massachusetts Ave, Cambridge, MA 02140

Jennifer McQueeney-Penamonte: Christopher's is such a homey place! I like the veggie burger--melts in your mouth!
