Oh, the good ol’ State of the Union Addresses. Nothing on television is more compelling than watching the President address Congress like they’re a giant herd of sheep. We’re totally kidding by the way. Sitting through one of those speeches is about as entertaining as Last Call with Carson Daly. But there’s another union we prefer, and apparently the rest of Boston agrees: Union Bar & Grille, on Washington Street in the South End. (Or as the Chamber of Commerce and lots of really hip people like to call it, SoWa.) Union actually exemplifies its name because all types of cuisines are brought together to form a melting pot of deliciousness. For example, the brunch menu consists of everything from our favorite heuvos rancheros, yet also offers a grilled Reuben with cabbage slaw. Their menu really is a union of different flavors. No wonder the Improper declared it the “Best American” restaurant in town.
Not only famous for their delectable brunch, Union has a pretty lively bar scene due to their extensive wine list and full bar offerings. So even if you’re not hungry enough for a meal, cleanse your palate with a cocktail. No matter which meal you come through those doors for, we have to admit that the state of this Union is pretty delicious.
