Appetizer Crawl! Who has the best starters?

Dining on appetizers at a series of locations is a great way to spend an evening out with friends. Where do you recommend to begin and end a tasty appetizer crawl in Beantown?

  1. Can you specify neighborhoods you'd like to hit/avoid?

    1. Any series of Boston restaurants that are located in the same sort of region (walking distance/short T/cab ride away.) Example: 3 restaurants from the North End or 4 restaurants from Cambridge. Thanks!

      1. The South End could be fun - 28 Degrees, Sibling Rivalry, and Tremont 647 are all relatively close to one another and have good appetizer options as well as good cocktailing.

        1. A few places that have some of my favorite apps are:

          --Orinoco, South End: domino arepa (tortilla with beans and white cheese)
          --Costello's, Jamaica Plain: chili cheese fries
          --Cambridge Common, Cambridge: boneless buffalo wings
          --Cafe Polonia, South Boston: wild mushroom soup with sour cream
          --Cronin's, Quincy: cajun chicken soup

          1. re: hiddenboston

            Were you making that as big a crawl as possible?

              Uhhh, I......I don't know what I was thinking, actually. Maybe the OP could choose one of them as part of a crawl. At least I gave him many widely-scattered areas from which to choose! ;-b

          2. Within easy walking distance of each other on Washington St in the South End:

            Red Fez
            Union Bar and Grill
            Pho Republique
            And, depending when you do it, the new Sage location may be open.
