The Burren, Somerville – Davis Square

When Steve suggested the Burren for lunch, I laughed, as I thought he was kidding. After all, the Burren was where I would go for drinks after working a hard 2pm-11pm shift at a residential treatment facility (first job out of college). I remember my first time there; I was getting up to leave, and my two (drunken) colleagues asked why I was leaving. I told them I had restraint training early in the morning. They laughed and said they could teach me everything I needed to know about restraints. Whoosh! Next thing you know, I’m on the floor of the Burren in a prone position. It wasn’t pretty.


Fast forward to lunch: It was me, Steve, his mother and his friend Kerry. Steve had just given us a tour of his new condo and we went for a quick bite. It was a beautiful day, so we opted to sit outside. I got a turkey club and I was pleasantly surprised. It had thick slices of roasted turkey breast, nice crispy bacon and thick tomato slices. My fries were golden and crispy. Kerry got a Thai beef salad and said that it had a lot of flavor. Steve got a chicken breast sandwich (like he does every week at John Harvard’s) and his mother got a turkey sandwich. Both seemed to enjoy their food. Service was prompt and friendly and prices are quite reasonable. It’s a good option for lunch, if you are in the area.
