Mamaleh’s or Zaftigs might be Boston's go-to Jewish and kosher restaurants, but it’s time to add Lehrhaus in Somerville to that list. They do food from the Jewish diaspora, so you’ll see Mexican and Ethiopian dishes, no meat, but some really excellent fish. The combo of thinly sliced herring, labneh, and acidy pickled peppers on the tartine is like the best whitefish salad ever, and the filling lentil-stuffed delicata squash will make any meat truther question everything. The space is half restaurant, half library, and they also host book signings, live music, and cooking classes. So come by on a weeknight for a cocktail made with arak, or sign up for a class that’ll teach you why Phish has a rabid Jewish fanbase.
