Dinner Tonight: Brookline, Allston, Brighton

You know I read most of the posts on this board, so am remotely familiar, but it's been quite awhile since I lived around the corner fron the Linden Superette.

We need a place for a casual dinner tonight, preferably with a beer/wine license at least.

No Italian. Open to all other cuisines. No Rod Dee!! (heh hehe) Since we just ate Korean last night we aren't opposed but might want something else unless its super.

We'd like to explore Allston/Brighton but are heading to Brookline afterwards, so Brookline is ok, too.

All suggestions appreciated .... Thanks

  1. Regal Beagle in Coolidge Corner and Cognac Bistro more toward Allston. Soulfire, Deep Ellum and Lone Star. Camino Real in Allston for super casual Columbian. Cafe Brazil on Camb. St.

        My first thought too, but they don't have a liquor license.

      2. The Abbey in Washington Square.

        1. Have you been to Cognac Bistro on Harvard yet? I enjoyed my meal there.

          1. Thanks Guys! Those are all great suggestions. I will discuss them with my buddies soon.

            Just our of curiosity ... what is the name of the place that used to be The Hammond on Washington Sq on the corner across Beacon fromThe Fireplace. Im spacing it. Wish it were still tthe Hammond.

                I actually think he's referring to the Abbey which is on the otehr side of beacon, if memory serves me correctly, wash sq tavern is on the same side as the fireplace. They are a similar though, The Abbey is owned by people who used to be associated w/ Wash sq Tavern, I think former chef maybe?

                  I'm pretty sure Wash Sq Tavern is across the street from The Fireplace on th inbound side of Beacon.
