Real connoisseur of everything old and dusty here. Maybe it's Mad Men rubbing off on me, but I want to make sure while I live in Boston (and before they close) I make it to EVERY area haunt that still has that classic feel.
I'm not looking for old places that have updated themselves and ostracized the white-hairs. I want to the places that still make a mean gin martini (and know that vodka is a poor substitute). Maybe they have London broil or peach Melba on the menu. They're surely dusty, and a bit weather-worn, but still have the spirit of an era that involved more hats and gloves than blue jeans and iPhones. They need not be expensive, just earnest.
These places are a dying breed, and I'd like to check them all out before it's too late. As a non-native, I don't have a good handle on where to find these joints.
Food is important, drinks are even more crucial, but what I really care about is the atmosphere.
Help me relive the past!
