Greener on the other side of the street? How about on the street bearing the same name?
After dropping the “Grill” part of their name some time back, Green Street kept up their solid reputation as a Cambridge hot spot, right off Central Square. First, let’s talk drinks. Six pages of cocktails, to be exact. Alphabetized. Wines in any price range. Grab a bar stool on busier nights to make sure they keep your glasses full.
Now let’s talk food. Features rotate often, so our favorites constantly change, but suffice to say, we love the variety with staples like duck and mac & cheese. The menu itself may not have a lot of veg options, but the chef is always accommodating. The lack of fries makes us a bit sad, but we get keeping things new and exciting can be tough with traditional, fried potatoes on the agenda. Still, what’s a pub without carb wedges? Props for the localization of the ingredients, though. We dig fresh regional produce.
The higher prices (think $20 for expanded comfort food) keep this gem a special occasion kind of place. Every city should have a few of these, and lucky for us, Green Street is just one of many over in the ‘Bridge.
