Bar crawl, but nicer
I'd like to arrange an evening of drinks, tapas-syle eating, and walking (or short, cheap cab rides between stops). I really love wine and cocktails but I'm such a lightweight that each one has to be taken with food and metabolism-boosting spurts of activity (not, like, jumping jacks at the bar, though). Can anybody help me design such an evening? With maybe 3 or 4 places?
Thank you so much!
You could do a short route that includes No. 9 Park, Spire, Silvertone, Troquet. You could extend it to Davio's and Via Matta. You could keep on walking to Piattini then Petit Robert Bistro and Eastern Standard in Kenmore Sq. And that's not even including a loop into the south end. Or starting at the bar at Meritage or one of the others in the Boston Harbor Hotel then over to Sel de la Terre.
And if you did want to do a loop in the south end...
Here's a couple options
Option 1. Start at Masa for tequila and tapas (or 28 degrees) > the Butcher Shop for wine and cheese > Franklin for cocktails.
Option 2. Start at Toro for drinks and apps > then either:
2.a. head to Tremont 647/Sister Sorel for a quick drink (mainly to break up the walk to Petite Robert for wine and mussels
2.b. head down Washingto to Stella (4 blocks) and then 3 more to Pho Republique for tuna spring rolls or even further down to Red Fez for meze style (maybe Rocca?)
I like Joanie's suggestions as well.
