Dirty Water Media Host Gianna Gravalese explores the many flavors of The Dial at 907 Main in Central Square, Cambridge.

Guests are welcome to sit on the charming patio in the heart of Central Square while noshing on dishes like Jerk Quail (mango puree and jicama pineapple slaw) Bucatini All ‘amatriciana (guanciale, red onion and spicy tomato sauce) or the Moqueca, a Brazilian shellfish stew (pan seared scallops, rock shrimp, jasmine rice, paprika coconut broth and cassava chips). With numerous gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options on every menu, there is something delectable for every diner at The Dial.

Executive Chef Justin Urso brings over 15 years of culinary experience working under award-winning chefs like Frank McClelland at both L’Espalier and Sel de la Terre. More recently, Justin served as the Chef de Cuisine at STARS at Chatham Bars Inn & Resort and then Chef de Cuisine at Catalyst Restaurant in Cambridge.

Try a “907 Classic Cocktail” like the Confectioners Row Manhattan (Rittenhouse Rye, Pedro Zimenez Sherry and chocolate bitters) or order a Weekend in Oaxaca (Peloton Mezcal Joven, Oloroso Sherry, orange blossom, grapefruit, agave and Peychaud’s bitters) for a “Globally Inspired” tipple.

The beverage program at The Dial is led by Courtney Nunheimer and features unique libations inspired by classic favorites, as well as wines from around the world and local craft beers.  The Dial also offers a tasty booze-free menu of thirst-quenching mocktails made with fresh ingredients like the Bluez Gone Wild (wild blueberry shrub, orange blossom, lemon oleo and Fever Tree ginger beer).
