Best of Boston

2011 Best Bar Food, Casual

Audubon Circle

Boston is full of places to grab a beer, a greasy burger, or wings on the cheap. But for a brew and tasty bites that won’t cause a morning-after food hangover, sidle up to a barstool—or cozy banquette—at Audubon Circle. The crispy duck salad with sage vinaigrette, the pork schnitzel with pickled onion, the chévre cheesecake—this is the kind of inspired fare that convinces you to sit back and order another Fisherman’s Ale…and another.
