1. JM Curley 21 Temple Pl, Boston, MA 02111 (Downtown Crossing)

"Just don't be a douchebag," reads one of the etiquette guidelines on the wall at this hip Downtown Crossing eatery, setting the scene for its no-nonsense approach to enjoying yourself over brews and burgers. An all-brick outfit reminiscent of a Prohibition speakeasy, JM Curley dishes out chef-driven takes on charcuterie boards, duck poutine, and -- most notably -- the house burger featuring homemade "pop's Russian" dressing. Prices run cheap for the tourist-heavy part of town it resides in -- and that goes for the specialty cocktails and domestic craft beers on tap, too.
