Featuring the best restaurants in Cambridge including exciting new participants!

Cambridge is one of the most widely recognized restaurant destinations in the region and each year, thousands of foodies descend upon the Taste of Cambridge to sample the delicious, creative, and award-winning cuisine that gives Cambridge it’s well-deserved reputation. The Taste is one of the great food sampling experiences in the region and features some of the best local restaurants (including exciting new participants!), specialty food purveyors, wine, beer, and summer cocktails.

This year, the Taste of Cambridge returns to its previous location at University Park. The Taste of Cambridge transforms University Park into a lush haven for gastronomical indulgences of the highest order!
