    People complained when Green St Grill became Green St and lost its Caribbean influences, but this is still a great restaurant. And there's a telephone book for a cocktail menu. [Eater 38 Member]

    One of the original best cocktail places in Boston. Before all the other new great places opened. Still an awesome spot, and great for dinner as well.

    Green Street is known for its sophisticated pub grub. We recommend the spicy clam stew or the braised pork shoulder. Also try a cocktail from their extensive, creative list. Read more

    The salad 'rare beef' (10$) was amazing, a lot of flavour, big portion, on a spicy side.

    This place may look like a dive bar from the outside but inside you'll find one of the best mixology programs in Cambridge. Fantastic cocktails!

    Food & Wine recommends the bacon double cheeseburger: two four-ounce beef patties with white American cheese, smoked bacon, and Russian dressing in a white bun.

    One of my favorite places in Boston, ask for the secret A-Z cocktail menu, get a dessert, sit back and relax! Good for small or large gatherings!

    Super cozy atmosphere, chill vibe. I like the food here better than the cocktails - but everything's so reasonably priced, you might as well.

    Looks like a hole in the wall and is off the beaten path.. My kinda joint! Incredible bartenders, killer cocktail lost, great beer selection.

    One of my Top 3 spots in Central; amazing cocktails, great people, and it's not overcrowded. Plenty of energy, but quiet enough to hold a conversation.

    If you like whiskey, order the Lion's Tail off of the A-to-Z menu. It packs a tasty punch.

    The spiced peanuts are a steal for $3. And ask for the long cocktail list for drinks to wash them down. You only get the short list if you don't ask!

    Ask for the "A to Z" cocktail menu, which requires a special request. Be blinded by science - 6 pages of delicious, diabolical, mixological science.

    Meat overcooked. I have been three times to give them chances... no matter if you ask for "rare" steak, it'll be overcooked, unacceptable for one of the most expensive restaurants in the area
