Since 2013, convivial hotspot Sarma has showcased Middle Eastern mezze/shareable plates in a lively Somerville dining room and bar. Chef/owner Cassie Piuma creates modern takes on traditional Turkish and Moroccan cuisine in dishes like seven-layer hummus, nettle spanakopita or octopus and squid black orzo paella. Drink offerings include global wines, craft beers and inspired Turkish and Moroccan-inspired cocktails like the Anointed Sour (Gin Mare Spanish gin, lemon, olive oil syrup, manzanilla sherry).
