Don't miss out on Craigie on Main's cocktail whim. You get four miniature cocktails that progress in courses, made with the same creativity and attention to detail as their food.

The Hawthorne and Island Creek Oyster Bar have very knowledgeable and talented bartenders. I always enjoy the things they come up with.

Walking I'll go to Ten Tables, TW Food, Full Moon or House of Chang or Paddy's. If I can drive then I'm going to the Charles Hotel ping pong between Noir, Henrietta's and Rialto. Or I'll pull up a seat at the Craigie on Main or The Blue Room Bar. If I want to settle into a nice settee then I'm going to Cuchi Cuchi or Park.
