Rebel Rebel, 1 Bow Market Way, Somerville

  • The beloved Bow Market shop serves fine, natural wines daily. The food menu is limited, so plan to grab a bite nearby at one of the market’s rotating food vendors, like Bluefin or Mike & Patty’s.

Colette Wine Bistro, 1924 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge

  • Grab a seat at the iconic pink couch, order from the curated list of wines by the glass, and try a dish from the seasonal dinner menu (think: steak frites and pan seared scallops).

Dear Annie, 1741 Massachusetts Ave., Cambridge

  • Recently featured in Bon Appétit, the Cambridge restaurant is rethinking pub culture by serving natural wine and pescatarian eats in a thoughtfully designed space. It’s open every day except Tuesdays, walk-in only. Pro tip: visit Mondays for pizza night.
