Overview

Expect seasonal, New American cuisine at Forage, a refined Cambridge restaurant and bar marked by reclaimed woods and a neutral palette. The bar focuses on biodynamic and organic global wines, local craft beers, housemade sodas and cocktails featuring small-batch spirits, like the Old Hermit (maple-wood aged rye, cider vinegar, maple, Angostura bitters). Dish highlights include lamb tajine with couscous fritters, catfish and mussel stew in parmesan broth or scallop spaetzle in nettle-salsa verde.
