The Good Life, Cambridge

The latest addition to Brian O’Neill’s growing empire, this new Good Life is perfectly suited to its Central Square location. The decor is, as in other Good Lifes, remarkably similar to your parents’ den, only wings this good and spicy were probably not served at home. Wash ’em down with one of many beers on tap, or a tasty cosmopolitan (the bartenders seem to have a flair for this drink du jour).
