Essentially a marriage of the concepts at Coda & Common Ground, CS's a neighborhood bar/eatery (from the cats behind both of those spots) slingin' seasonally inspired, locally sourced grub.
The Fairsted Kitchen finds contemporary American food in a comfortable atmosphere set in Washington Square. Try the pig head lettuce wraps or grilled wagyu zabuton, and pair it with one suggestion from Steve Bowman (house sommelier).
Enjoy Provencal-style cuisine at Bistro du Midi, including delectably melty grilled cheeses, seasonal oysters, duck, and lamb.
After ditching the South End for that Square Matt Damon only visits to pwn ponytailed grad students with apple jokes, the renowned chef behind Ginger Park & OM's now taking it to Central with Moksa, a casual izakaya/ cocktail haven/ night club that slings late-night Asian tapas and street eats alongside upscale libations. The space is open and industrial with an 11-seat bar and a main dining room with bamboo banquettes. Pan-Asian street shareables like pig cheek skewers and tuna poke with hearts of palm fill the menu alongside crafty cocktails like the Tokyo Chic with white whiskey, absinthe and smashed edamame.
