2023 Best Reason to Reserve Early


The team behind the always-booked-up Brookline hit restaurant Cobble has done it again, this time with a BYOB cocktail bar. You read that right: You bring the booze, and Barlette provides the mixers, glassware, snacks, and dramatic-floral-wallcovering-bedecked vibes, complete with a variety of themed nooks to explore, like the book-filled Library. Just be quick — reservations open at noon on the first of every month and go fast.
