Elm Street Tap is one of the better beer bars in Somerville, with a ton of taps pouring almost exclusively New England-based beers. The beer should be the principal reason you go here because the menu, while slightly better than your standard pub burgers and fries, isn’t anything you’ll fall in love with. It’s a nice dark space with wide windows fronting Elm Street, though, and a good place to grab a drink with a couple friends or try to seal the deal after a date.
