lways wanted to try the culinary creations of Food & Wine best new chef Tony Maws, but can’t afford his Craigie on Main? We’ve got a secret for you: Maws also runs the casual gastropub Kirkland Tap & Trotter on the Cambridge-Somerville line, with high-end but lower-priced versions of uncommon delights from chicory to cuttlefish alongside pub favorites such as cheeseburgers and wings. The well-rounded menu is matched by an extensive selection of non-fussy cocktails, wines, and plenty of craft beers, bottled and on tap. Zarowin
