As one who has complained about the dearth of quality late night dining options for as long as anyone would listen, I am delighted to put the word out about Craigie on Main (the new Craigie Street Bistro). Anyone who reads this board knows the food is excellent. The big change in the new location is the addition of a world class cocktail bar, featuring full menu dining as well as an excellent bar menu served UNTIL MIDNIGHT TUES - SUN!
We skulked in last night at around 10:45, fingers crossed, hoping for a bit to eat, and found we had plenty of time. We put together a beautiful mini 3-course meal from the bar menu: cured sea trout tartare, followed by marinated sardines and grilled heads-on shrimp, and finished with a great cheese plate.
Let it be known, there is now great bar dining available without compromise in Cambridge until midnight. It's about time.
PS: In the past, I was never able to go to Craigie Street as often as I'd have liked because dinner there always ended up costing a bundle. The bar at the new place makes it much more possible to spend less money.
