Marked by the comfort of a neighborhood haunt and a low-key sort of elegance, “the Indo” is a Somerville favorite. The kitchen produces delicious, adventurous dishes—raclettes, trout fritters, fried almonds—until 1am. And the adjoining bar is Irish without being too much so, with a fine wine list and one of the better pints of Guinness in town. Every other Friday night, it plays host to “Mash Ave,” a DJ night featuring the latest and greatest mash-ups and bootlegs.
