2009 BEST Harvard Square Restaurant, Neighborhood

Temple Bar

A dark, cozy eatery well away from the heart of the square, Temple Bar is nothing like its raucous Dublin namesake (think Cancún goes to Ireland), a fact that suits its typical clientele just fine. Off-duty Harvard dons, hipster scholars, young families, and mellow girls’-night-out groups file in for the ever reliable Angus burgers and crisped-to-perfection rosemary frites, while bromances are conducted at the bar over pancetta mac ‘n’ cheese and truffled flatbreads.
