2009 BEST Davis Square Restaurant, Neighborhood

Gargoyles on the Square

Visiting Gargoyles only on date night (yes, the lighting flatters; true, the velvet cascades) is like eating oysters only to boost your mojo. Both should be enjoyed, and often, on their own merits—nooky prospects be damned. Wash away the workday with a silky but strong cocktail (we love the summer-in-a-glass Backyard), and refuel for tomorrow with chef Jason Santos’s seasonally inspired fare. And, if you must, flirt at the dish sitting at the next table.
