2023 Best Cream of Wheat

The Neighborhood Restaurant and Bakery

Is it strange to honor humble cream of wheat? Maybe. But the version at the Neighborhood, a Somerville brunch mainstay, is the epitome of “if you know, you know.” Many have tried to reverse-engineer the top-secret recipe, but you’re better off making the trip to Union Square for true love in a bowl liberally dusted with cinnamon.
