Downtown Somerville’s Fresh Dining Scene

Downtown Somerville’s dining scene is heating up, and #HipNJ has the scoop on all the delicious new eateries you have to try!

First, let’s shine a spotlight on The Salad House. This fast and casual restaurant specializing in fresh customized and signature salads is set to open with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony on February 2nd.

The Salad House of Somerville is the latest of the small New Jersey franchise to open under the ownership of David Delinko. The restaurant creates fast healthy salads and meals that are made-to-order or signature salads that put a twist on popular favorites such as the “Greek Out,” “Eat Cobb,” “Stay Classy Caesar” and more.

“We serve health-conscious, comfort food that is personalized to suit the individual taste, dietary and nutritional needs of each and every customer whether they dine in or choose from our wide selection of catering options for their home or office family,”  said Delinko. In addition to its namesake salads, the 20-seat restaurant serves soup, appetizers, sandwiches and flatbread pizzas.

“Downtown Somerville has certainly earned its reputation as a ‘foodie destination,’ with more than 45 popular restaurants and eateries to please every palate,” said Beth Anne MacDonald, executive director of the Downtown Somerville Alliance. “You can eat your way around the world here from Greek, Asian, Cuban, New American, French-inspired, Italian, Irish and more, but this year is particularly exciting because we’ve got several new concept restaurants and cafes that will add some new flavor to the downtown.”
