2024 Best Vietnamese Restaurant

The Eaves

Talk about a hidden gem: This tiny restaurant and cocktail bar from the Cicada team is tucked inside a former storage space at Somerville’s Bow Market. While the debut last year was quiet, the experience of dining here is anything but thanks to dishes that blend chef and co-owner Vincenzo Le’s life experience in Vietnam and New England (duck-confit dumplings; fluke tartare with lemongrass). A soundtrack that bops from disco to Asian pop to 1960s French ballads adds to the fusion-y vibe.
