Highland Kitchen

The music blaring from Highland Kitchen’s Victorian jukebox perfectly echoes the eatery’s neighborhood vibe. Which isn’t surprising, given that the 100 CDs (rotated each season) are chosen by chef Mark Romano and his bartenders. Five bucks gets you 13 songs from artists like the Flamin’ Groovies and Lee Moses—plus a killer night out.
