Central Square for drinks/food?
- Ali G Feb 2, 2007 09:48 AM
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.
It's too late for you, but if anyone looks here later, the Enormous Room (upstairs from Central Kitchen) has good drinks and food and a great atmosphere.
If it were any good at all, Tavern on the Square would be just what you're looking for. Unfortunately...
Miracle is good, but the selection is quite limited. Rendezvous and Central Kitchen are excellent, but more expensive. The Asgard is pretty good, might work for you. Green Street may be your best bet, even though it's not really a beer heaven kind of place.
