If you like pickles, then run, don’t walk, to Deep Ellum in Allston. heypielady reports that the pickled veggies that come with the sausage appetizer plate are fantastic. So is the spicy sausage, which “has a nice fine texture that I’ve only had before in Lao sausage at East-West Grille in West Hartford,” heypielady says.

The schnitzel is outstanding, with a “perfectly crunchy breading on mouth-watering tender pork.” But the Green Goddess salad is just “pretty good”; the highlight, again, is the pickles (in this case, pickled grapes).

The atmosphere at Deep Ellum is “dark and cozy,” and there’s an “elusive [and] amazing” beer menu. “If only I lived within walking distance of this place,” says heypielady. “I could really become a regular.”
