Somerville/Davis Square: 3 Superlative Dishes?

Jolyon Helterman | Aug 20, 2011 01:07 PM

After almost 10 years of living in the Leather District and in the South End, we're relocating to a place just off Davis Square. Exciting!

I've covered the city's dining scene enough during various writing stints to be fairly well versed in what the right *spots* around this neighborhood (or so I think...). What might help even more (and what might make this thread not so eye-glazingly basic for anyone willing to chime in), though, is to hear from fellow Chowhounds what some of those superlative *dishes* are—you know, those crave-worthy plates so good you might sit at the bar and order that and only that, even if the rest of the menu is less memorable.

Got 3 recommendations within walking distance (or a quick drive) of Davis Square, to steer me toward? More, less, anything.

Here are 3 that I already love, and I haven't even started truly digging in:
(1) Buffalo shrimp at Redbones
(2) Pork belly with pickled grapes at Foundry on Elm
(3) Mushroom pizza at Posto

Thanks in advance.
