Grafton Street Pub & Grill

There’s something for every Cantabrigian at Grafton Street, from tweedy professor to tyke-toting moms. Appetizers range from the unusual (lobster risotto, spring rolls with duck confit and Asian vegetables) to the more familiar (calamari and salads), and entrées from walnut-crusted sea scallops and pan-seared veal to pizzas and pastas. Quaint yet creative, inventive but affordable, this hangout musters the impossible task of being all things to all people.
