Bon Appetit Includes Juliet, Shepard Among Nominees for Best New Restaurants of 2016

A popular food magazine has given its list of nominees for the best new restaurants in America once again, and included on the list are a couple of dining spots in Somerville and Cambridge.

According to the list from Bon Appetit, Juliet in Somerville's Union Square and Shepard in Cambridge (between Porter Square and Harvard Square) have been included among its 50 nominees for best new dining spots in the United States for 2016, calling the former "The all-day cafe of our dreams" and the latter "The smartest restaurant in Cambridge." Two other New England restaurants made the list as well--Drifters Wife in Portland and Oberlin in Providence--while five spots in New York City were also included (Bar Goto, Mimi, Superiority Burger, Te Company, and Wildair).

The magazine will announce which restaurants have made the top 10 on August 16.

Juliet debuted on Washington Street in Somerville in February while Shepard opened on Shepard Street in Cambridge in June of 2015.
