Square Meals: Somerville Fresh – Union Square Foodie Crawl

So, I have another fun event to tell you about my foodie friends. And yes, I have a pair of tickets to give away as well!

This event is hosted by Union Square Main Streets:

Union Square Main Streets creates a vibrant neighborhood by enhancing the Union Square business district and surrounding neighborhoods through active community collaboration.  By enhancing the artistic and ethnic strengths of the neighborhood we seek to drive commercial and economic development.  We celebrate food — local and international, our own eclectic creative sensibilities, and the dense, unique fabric of our New England square that blossomed before there was such as thing as smart growth.

Union Square Main Streets has put together an evening that will delight all of your tastebuds as you experience a progressive dinner through three of the areas top dining destinations: Casa B, The Independent and Journeyman. This fabulous event will take place on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 at 6:30 pm.

The crawl will start at 6:30 at Casa B, Union Square’s newest restaurant, opening just last December. Owners Alberto Cabre and Angelina Jockovich serve up tapas and pinchos, embracing romanticism, warmth and the spice of Latin-America. They’ll have a selection of delectable tapas ready for us and a glass of their exquisite sangria.

The next stop will be The Independent, where seasonal and sustainable ingredients are prepared classically. This long-time neighborhood favorite will serve up a savory course and paired beverage.

The evening will end at Journeyman, where chefs Tse Wei Lim and Diana Kudajarova source their ingredients from small artisan producers to prepare elegant food that always surprises. They promise to end our delicious night memorably.

And let’s not forget the fun you will have with the other foodies and non-foodies who join you in this advernturous evening! If you would like to hedge your bets and buy tickets ($40 + processing), simply click here. However, if you would like to win tickets….

  1. I live in Union so casa b’s definitely on my list, I also love stonehearth pizza for all the fresh local ingredients they use.

  2. What a great giveaway! I love the Independent but have been dying to try Journeyman. I like the idea that you can try three different places in one night.

  3. This sounds fantastic! Too ‘new’ to my new ‘hood…but my recent old ‘hood (Fenway) is hoppin! Island Creek Oyster, Citizen, Sweetcheeks, & Basho.

  4. Wow, what a fantastic event. I’ve been to Journeyman before but would love to check out the new spots (and revisit JM!).
    Adam and I are locals at Coda. They source a lot of their ingredients locally and have a really cozy atmosphere with reasonable prices.

  5. Well, full disclosure: I live in Braintree, so there’s not much culinary goodness happening in my neck of the woods. I have to go with Murray’s Deli for being the best dang deli I’ve ever been to.
