If trendy Edison light bulbs are an indication of a restaurant with promise, then Mason Social is GTG. Sure there’s a dining room in the back, but where you want to post up is at the bar, where you can hang with bar man Tony Burke as he makes you a twist on a classic cocktail. The Parker Gray -- with Earl Grey-infused rye, vermouth, and bitters -- is the neighborhood restaurant’s signature drink. The bar menu stars everything from a bone marrow butter-laced burger and BBQ pork sandwich, to more uppity scallop pasta or rockfish with fennel and winter citrus salad.
