2005 BEST Davis Square Restaurant, Neighborhood

Gargoyles on the Square

Ten years ago, skeptics wondered whether an upscale American bistro like Gargoyles could succeed in Davis Square. Judging from the crowds of patrons, the answer is yes. For more-affordable eats, though, bypass the dining room, grab a seat (if you can find one) at the bar, and indulge in options like the tuna tartare with avocado purée, a top-notch burger with perfectly seasoned fries, or the creative pizza of the day.
