    friendly staff! They let me sit outside with my laptop and drink a beer before it got busy with dinner service! Great selection of beers: green flash double ipa, grapefruit sculpin, and Beer 4.

    A small place that gets a long line quickly, but the food is some of the best in the neighborhood: bison bolognese, truffle fries, among the favorites here. Good beer list, too.

    Bison bolognese and the arancini are both excellent. The beer menu is shorter than the Publick House across the street but has all my favorites

    The Abbey serves amazing food until 1:30am and they have both Guinness & Allagash White on draft - the top two food groups on the food pyramid. When you go say hi to Damian behind the bar.

    Truffle fries are always a good pick , the St. Louis style BBQ ribs special was delicious and a good portion

    Excellent menu, maybe the best in the Washington Square area. Bison bolognese is a personal favorite.

    A late-night kitchen, a respectable Scotch collection & a big wooden bar are the ingredients we need to keep out of the dives. Check it out.

    It can get cramped and obnoxiously loud, but the food is great with a nice selection of craft brews. The mussels topped with fries is excellent!

    It's worth waiting in line at this neighborhood jewel for their peppery codfish cakes, fine statler chicken breast, or their excellent roast cod Read more

    Tables outside on the patio aren't "dog friendly", but you can tie up the pooch across the sidewalk

    They call it deviled eggs, but two halves make a whole. You are served a single egg cut in half. Not worth the money.
