Pier 6 - just across the piers from my building, is a perfect waterfront bar! I like River Bar in Assembly Row for the fire pits too.

Not always thrilled with the food or service at Cambridge, 1. but the ambiance is really nice. Used to be a firehouse. Dark, wood, brick -- relaxing for Harvard Square.
Oh, and Algiers in Harvard Sq. for sure, especially the upstairs. Definitely feels like a step into another world.

Not technically Boston area, but I love the Rye Tavern in Plymouth so much. It's surrounded by nothing but woods, fields, and an old dirt road. It's completely secluded, and you feel like you're at someone's house for a summer party. The "yard" is complete with adirondack chairs and their own vegetable gardens. The inside is rustic and New Englandy, but the outside is so much nicer to enjoy.

Spoke in Davis
Red House by the fireplace in the winter
