From cheap eats to fine dining, Cambridge has it all, offering some of the best eating experiences in the Boston area. Vegetarians are particularly well catered for on this side of the river.
Harvard Square has coffeehouses, sandwich shops, ethnic cafes and upscale restaurants to suit every budget and taste. There is also a decent food court in the mini-mall known as the Garage.
Patron food-saint Julia Child, longtime Cambridge resident and star of many cooking shows, spent four decades teaching people to cook before she died in 2004. If you want to embody Julia’s bon vivant, bon appétit spirit, take a cooking class at Cambridge School of Culinary Arts. The recreation division of this professional school offers one-time courses focusing on seasonal meals such as 'An American Gathering' or on crucial cooking skills such as the 'Art of Grilling' or 'Fish Cookery'. Several times a week there are special 'Cooking Couples' classes, focusing on tapas, sushi, wine pairing and more. Located two blocks north of the Porter Sq T station.
