Central Square for drinks/food?
I know there are plenty of threads on this, but I can't stand the way the search feature works now and can't seem to make it list most applicable 1st (like having central sq in the title).
Anyway, I'm meeting a friend there tonight and I'm looking for some ideas on where to grab a bite and some drinks. Nothing too expensive. We will probably be drinking beer, so a good selection is a plus. I'm open to anything, but not sure if I'm in the mood for Indian / Asian, etc. Any ideas? We will both be on foot, so a short walk from the T stop is a big plus too.
Sounds like River Gods to me. Google informs me that it is 0.3 miles down River Street from the Central Square T.
I like casual snacks and drinks at Zu Zu and Central Kitchen. Green Street Grill might be a good choice too. I'm not real sure how large the beer selections are for any of them though... All three are within a minute or two of the Central Square T stop.
Cheap & grungy: People's Republik for beer, shots & french fries
Crowded & gothic: River Gods for beer, old church pews & cupid hearts everywhere
Loungy & loud: Middlesex for low moving benches, a dj, and a line
Geeky & pub-ish: Miracle of Science for munchies, beer & the game
Comfy & tasty: Green Street for Ipswitch & apps
Pool & old school: The Field
Green Street is a great option for this. Unfortunately, since their re-opening they have changed their menu to something considerably less interesting than it used to be - I think the goat curry is long gone. But, the bar makes great drinks and they have an impressive selection of rums.
i'm a big fan of miracle of science- it's definitely pub-ish but it has a (limited) menu of really good stuff (salad, burger, chicken satays, etc.) and a good selection of drinks.
