Baleia South End

Newly added!

The fishing motif is subtle, but it’s there (baleia means “whale” in Portuguese), which makes sense: The sibling of superstars The Salty Pig, SRV, and Gufo leans on seafood, and no one can fault a great raw bar selection. Ever.

Lehrhaus Somerville

map

Here’s a true original — a combination tavern and “house of learning” (or lehrhaus in German) dedicated to Jewish culture. That means classes and book clubs, but also a savory kosher pescatarian menu (the pastrami is made from beets, the “chopped not-liver” from eggplant and nuts) that goes way beyond deli fare.

Burrata and prosciutto at dbar

Is this former Irish pub in Dorchester a clubby tacos-to-falafel-to-cavatelli gastropub, or an LGBTQ-friendly nightclub and lounge, complete with drag shows and show-tune Tuesdays? The answer is yes to both — and the two identities meld seamlessly together, to everyone’s delight.

Dear Annie Cambridge

There’s a lightness to this Cambridge wine bar, and it’s not just because of the effervescent natural wines on the list. Maybe it’s the fresh-cut flowers and greenery, the shimmer of cut glass or the neon signage. It’s more likely the fun and frolicking menu, snackables like pickled mussels or spicy seafood fumet, plus enough wines by the glass to try to keep things interesting.

Nosh and Grog Restaurant The Village Shoppes of Canton (Cobbs Corner / Shaw's Plaza)

map

The Canton iteration of this gastropub brings the same flair and farm name-dropping as the original, albeit in a modern space with exposed brick walls and punches of earthy sage green. There are cocktails and snacks, like lobster bao, for the peckish. Or boards (Meat! Cheese! Butter!) for sharing amongst friends. And a great chicken sandwich when it’s needed. Point is: You can’t go wrong anywhere you point on the menu.
