Feel as if Barbara Lynch’s Drink is getting as much internet buzz as Britney Spears? Well, we admit we’ve recently raved about it, but, like any acclaimed restaurant, there’s going to be complaints too. A recent Chowhound thread, “Drink: A Plea to Barbara Lynch” contains many of the thoughts that float through the average Bostonian’s head: We adore the beverages, but when the desire to munch sets in, a set of 4 tiny gougeres doesn’t quite hit the spot. The originator of the Chowhound thread states “The place emphasizes the drinks and is not about having a meal. However, if you are going to bother to serve “snacks” at all, please make them better than the present offerings.” While we found out skewered shrimp and gougeres tasty, ultimately our group had to order a slew of “small bites” just to absorb the liquor in our stomachs. So we know the bar is called Drink and not eat, but let’s hope Lynch’s crew and the legions of hungry patrons can meet somewhere midway.
