Best of Boston

1989 Best Undiscovered Spot

Ed Burke’s

Burke’s is not new, but 10 years of Huntington Avenue being torn up have prevented, shall we say, overexposure. The neighborhood is better than you might think, and a couple of bucks to see bands led by anyone from an ex-Woody Herman tenor player to the Grateful Dead drummer is a good deal.
