Craigie on Main

853 Main St.
Cambridge, MA, 02139, United States
TEL: (617) 497-5511

A short walk from Central Square, Craigie on Main serves French-American cuisine with a focus on local ingredients and nose-to-tail cooking. The restaurant is owned by James Beard Award winner Tony Maws, who frequently works as a line cook in the open kitchen, preparing specialties like the Vermont pork three ways—suckling confit, spice-crusted rib, and country sausage. Beside the state-of-the-art kitchen, the restaurant contains hardwood flooring, whitewashed brick walls hung with vintage posters, and a bar serving inventive cocktails like the Bramble & Arabica, with blackberry and coffee liqueurs, sweet vermouth, rum, and egg yolk.

Insider Tip:

Arrive before 6 p.m. if you want to try Craigie’s famous burger—it’s made with beef from a small local farm, so the restaurant only serves about 20 per night.
