Sycamore is a seasonally inspired, chef-owned neighborhood bistro in Newton Centre. Emphasizing locally sourced produce, fish and meat, our menu draws on classic European country food; rustic and wholesome. Our beverage program is designed to complement the cuisine. The wine list focuses on passionate small producers, our beers are by and large domestic craft selections and the cocktail list highlights classic drinks and sipping spirits.

"Everything was very nice: service, cocktails, wine, food, and ambiance. Pickles were great, ceviche and peach salad (sans coppa) were quite nice, and farm board had lots of delicious options. Would definitely come back, though having lots of good restaurants closer to us, probably won't be soon. We were very happy with sycamore and would certainly recommend it."

Puritan & Company serves modern American cuisine, with particular emphasis on traditional New England fare, and not without occasional excursions into other ethnic ingredients and styles. Our mainstays are ingredients sourced from farms we know and locally to the extent possible, and always a sense of fun.<br /><br />Our dining room is a casual and fun place to dine. We love to share our excitement about the food and wine we serve like we would in our own home. Guests and their friends should feel comfortable in our friendly and even familial environment as we make our food and guest the number one focus.

"Adding a new favorite to our list. The food was all great, from appetizer to dessert, including the fresh bread. Cocktails were delicious, the place was cute and service was prompt and friendly. No complaints. Go a little off the beaten path to get here - it is well worth it!"

Posto, a modern interpretation of a classic Italian pizzeria, enoteca and trattoria all presented in a “farm chic” open air concept, is a fantastic new addition to Davis Square. Specializing in wood fired Neapolitan Pizza and Italian cuisine. Our menu features handmade pastas, grilled meats and fish, specialty cocktails and an extensive wine by the glass list that is centered around “Enzo,” our imported Italian wine preservation system. Posto is an elegantly appointed venue with subtle contemporary and rustic sophistication providing a family friendly, approachable dining venue. We support local artists, farmers, and ranchers whenever possible.

"Posto does not disappoint with wonderful service and great food. The tiramisu was good but not great, though pizza and arancini were fab. A favorite spot for sure!"
