At the heart of the East Somerville community are the people who live here! Each week East Somerville Main Streets will be posting answers from East Somerville Residents to share what they think makes East Somerville great!!!
This Week Meet: Laura Vivenzio
· How long have you been a part of the East Somerville community?
I have been a resident of East Somerville for eight years. I've been a member of ESMS since 2007 and enjoy volunteering with them.
· What’s happening in East Somerville or on East Broadway that you’re excited about?
The opening of the newly-renovated Mudflat building has been one of the great success stories of the neighborhood. Work is happening in earnest at the site of the new East Somerville Community School, and also, late-breaking news of a new restaurant called La Brasa coming to East Broadway is very exciting!
· Favorite East Somerville eats (restaurants, favorite dishes...)?
I think I've eaten at most places in East Somerville...the food is fantastic! There's a wide variety of cuisines and establishments to choose from. The Sambosa at Fasika Ethiopian restaurant is delicious, as is Taco Loco's perfect chicken burrito, the antipasti bar over at Vinny's at Night, and you just cannot go wrong with the popovers from the Mt. Vernon.
· Why is East Somerville a great place to live?
The ethnic diversity and multicultural population are my main reasons for loving East Somerville as a place to live. Also, its close proximity to downtown Boston is certainly a plus!
