Best Food at a Boston Music Joint?

I have to say before a show at Johnny D's in Somerville, they put on a pretty good feed. I had a pasta with chorizo and fresh herbs and a nice salad recently.

Usually the music is always proportionally better than the chow - but which Jazz - Rock - Folk clubs serve up the best chow?

    I like both Daryl's Corner Bar and Restaurante Cesaria. Daryl's has good straight forward comfort food and books solid Jazz acts. Ceseria is great for Cape Verdean food and music.

    Also keep an eye on Lorenz Island Kuisine as well. From what they mentioned to me, they seem to have plans to expand their live music to more often than a few nights a month. Would be roots reggae acts though.

      Not Boston but the Bone in Framingham has good wings and Firefly's in Marlbor has consisten BBQ. Both mostly blues.

        Dot2Dot Cafe in Dorchester has done live music and a dinner menu a couple of nights a week, Thurs/Fri is memory serves. Otherwise it's just a breakfast/lunch/brunch everyday kind of place. Don't know if they're still doing it.

          I haven't been myself, but several food-and-blues loving friends highly recommend Smoken Joe's in Brighton for bbq and Southern favorites.
