Want to silence snooty foodie visitors? Chef Peter Ungár's ticket-only Somerville dining experience is, well, the ticket. Ungár worked in the kitchen of the late, lauded Aujourd'hui as well as in Paris and is unafraid to push the envelope across all nine courses of his tasting menus. Outre dishes like oyster with cucumber-seaweed gel, nashi pear and candied Meyer lemon are prepped in front of the 20-seat counter, thus the “dining as theater” description of the experience. The price ain’t cheap ($165-$180 per person), but it does include drinks and gratuity. Turns out Boston’s best new restaurant might just be in Somerville.
