Tanám Restaurant

Get a private dining experience for your group with our kamayan family dinner. We seat parties as large as 10 in our space for single price buyouts. We also provide this experience for smaller groups interested in sharing space with other groups, either as a fully communal table (such as above, 5 PM only) or next to each other with separately plated dishes for your group.

Our patio is open for warmer weather. Reserve a spot for Kamayan, preferably with a friend as this is a meal meant to be shared! We invite you to make a table reservation through our Tock. If you aren’t able to sit and join us, place an order for a Kamayan To Go to enjoy at home or at Bow Market. Make sure you book ahead of time!

This tiny space in Somerville’s Bow Market hosts some of Boston’s most interesting meals. The changing Filipino menu is top notch, offering delicacies not often found anywhere else in the city. The dining experience, however, is what puts Tanám over the top. Stop by for cocktails and bar food on Thursday nights, or make a reservation (no walk-ins) for one of the unique dining experiences. Wednesdays and Sundays feature a kamayan-style dinner-dishes are spread on top of banana leaves on the communal table and eaten with the hands. Fridays and Saturdays feature “Coursed Storytelling” in which Chef-owner Ellie Tiglao prepares a tasting menu for the communal table of Filipino dishes complemented by personal stories and histories of the food and culture.
