I know, I know...the Improper does that Boston's Best Bartender issue...so this might, to some, be a dumb question. Frankly, though, I have no interest in going to the Rack for a Zima! Cocktails are a great way to see some of the city's best restaurants without dropping serious cash on a whole dinner. With that in mind...
So, I'd like to know peoples thoughts on best places for:
-glass of wine and perhaps a nice pre-dinner bite to eat
-old fashioned cocktail (Side Car, Kir Royale, Pimm's Cup, that sort of thing?)
-a cold (or better yet- room temp) beer on a hot summer night?
-Sangria, Martini, or other specialty drink...
***any thoughts on foods to compliment at each place would be much appreciated
