Coolidge Corner tonight

  • u

Looking for a recommendation for a place to dine this evening, preferably with a liquor liscence.
I haven't been in Coolidge Corner for a while and am meeting a friend there for dinner tonight.
Any genre will work.

  1. Khao Sarn! Khao Sarn! Khao Sarn! Khao Sarn!

    Khao Sarn!

    1. If you like Thai, go to Khao Sarn. Yoshi (or Noon) will make you a nice drink at the bar and the food is superb.

      Salmon How Moak, spicy beef salad, miang kum all highly recommended.

      A few blocks in the other direction is Dok Bua but they don't have a license. You can byo, however.

          Another vote for Khao Sarn. In addition to everything yumyum mentioned, I really like their pad kee mao and any of their whole fish preparations.

          But really, Mango-tini, Gini? I say: Cobra's blood! Makes you strong!! (Surprisingly tasty as well, for something with a snake in it.)

            Yes, Khao Sarn, and another recommendation for the pad kee mao. But I'll have mine with a Khao Sarn cosmo, with that lovely rose-infused vodka. Not something I'd want every day, just every time I'm there :).

      1. Though, if you don't want Thai, and you don't mind noise, the steak tips at the Coolidge Corner Clubhouse are the best in Boston.

        1. There's also a vietnamese place, Pho Lemongrass maybe? really good.

          1. Khao Sarn for sure!

            Or you could head a half mile south to the Family Restaurant in Brookline Village for some excellent Turkish food. They have beer there, but I'm not sure if they have wine or mixed drinks...
