Washington Square Tavern in Brookline

Just felt the need to give Gerry and his crew some love after another great meal.

For anyone who is not aware, WST has an insanely cheap wine list, with many bottles only $10 or so over retail (think Silvertone's list with more options and heavy on pinot and cab).

The service can be hit or miss (particularly a miss if Gerry isn't there), but the chef puts out some of the best food in Brookline.

    I love it too. Gerry curates a few nice bottles (not always on the list) and he is always willing to pull them out for those who appreciate. The food is always good, and the room is really comfortable. Such a great neighborhood spot!

      It's true. I've been a regular for about a year now and have gotten to know some other regulars there, too. It's like my own little Brookline Cheers. haha

      He owns a wine store in Waltham now, too. Not sure how well that'll go but I appreciate the fact that his list often gets new bottles.

      I agree, the WST is awesome. Great cuisine, warm ambiance, and Gerry is indeed the best!

      I'm a regular and always leave thinking, "this place is great!"

        Count me among the fans. This is my local bistro and I consider myself lucky. Gerry's love and knowledge of wine is something he shares generously and the kitchen is solid to excellent. Really, this is what you hope for from a neighborhood place. Lucky us.
