2. The Living Room 101 Atlantic Ave, Boston, MA 02110

Unless your living room has an 150-gallon aquarium overlooking a martini bar and serves buffalo chicken dumplings, chicken satay, and wood-grilled steak tips, you should leave it and come to this one.

3. Beehive 541 Tremont St, Boston, MA 02116

Located at the Boston Center for the Arts, Beehive's a "Bohemian eatery" with food, cocktails, and live music. Not only is their craft cocktail list is the perfect remedy for Bean Town's dreary weather, the small plates will warm you up with complex and hearty flavors. Stop in for an elegant dinner (there'll probably be some live music going on as well), or a fancy brunch complete with mimosas or bloodies.
