Somerville’s Bow Market has tons of food options and scarves and organic soaps for sale—it’s all there. But until now, it’s never quite had a perfect Vietnamese date spot that pumps disco. The tiny space is shrouded in plants, seats maybe 25 people, and glows in purplish light, so naturally, it’s a good place to consider falling in love. But it’s the food that’ll keep you coming back—the Vietnamese dishes can hang with any of the top places in Field’s Corner. The menu changes often, with dishes like duck confit gyoza, a light but satisfying shrimp vermicelli, and local fish tartare that, depending on the day, might be dressed with lemongrass. They take reservations, but you can still walk in for a casual dinner (for now).
