If you're looking for an impersonal bar to go drink too much and try to dance with randoms, this isn't a bad place to hit up. Otherwise, short of having a HUGE group of friends going out together, I'd tend towards steering clear. The drinks were expensive, and while I'm sure they thought they were doing me a favor, pouring a drink that's too stiff isn't always a good thing. I suppose you could call it a nicer college bar, as it's really pretty close to BU and other area colleges, but even with the proximity I didn't notice the group there as being significantly younger. It just didn't seem to stand up to the hype, further, an extra bartender or two would have been nice instead of having to wait 10 minutes standing at the bar like an idiot hoping they notice you over the Joe Shmoe standing next to you to get a drink... This is not a good date place. In short: You can probably do better, there's too many bars in Boston to give this one a second look.

Best Tex-Mex comfort food! Despite not being a tequila fan, I actually enjoy their top-shelf Mexican martinis. Wait time can be a bummer especially during weekends, but order a drink from their bar and that can make the wait fly by.

Being from the bellows and podunks of South Arkansas, I'm a damn ragin' Cajun and Parish speaks to my heart. I could go and just gorge on the gumbo....seriously. It's so delightfully spicy and succulent, only problem: one serving is never enough. I love how Bob and the gang at Concentrics have shaped the restaurant to give it flair and character. The menu is written in chalk in an oversize chalkboard on the wall, with the drink list being printed on a to-go brown bag - perfect to take your wine home in if you so choose. The place screams "New Orleans", and I love that...immensely! I've only been for dinner so far and I try to make it a point to go whenever I can....now I just need to make it a point to get out of bed early enough for Brunch (their market is too cute and all of the food looks delish). Be sure to make reservations, grab an Oyster Shooter at the bar or take your pick from one of the many Abita beer selections (accurately reflecting a beer loved by all Louisianans as it is brewed in the swamps of LA) and enjoy the ambiance of this Bourbonesque restaurant set in the middle of Inman Park. ***Donate to the Katrina Efforts while you're there!
