She Said: After many many months of zero reviews, I am delighted to share my experience of Granary Tavern! I always visit this place on my visits to Boston and it NEVER disappoints! Both the food and drink menus are delicious. The bartenders are very knowledgeable and typically throw me a crafted, special drink!

During my last visit, we sat outside on the patio – It was beautiful, but hot out. I ordered a refreshing Sangria along with 2 flatbreads and tacos. We did a three cheese mushroom flatbread and a shrimp flatbread. Crispy and light. Made with delicious cheeses. Here are the facts:
THREE CHEESE MUSHROOM
soubise, herb roasted mushrooms, fontina, asiago, ricotta
SHRIMP
scampi shrimp, roasted garlic cream sauce, shaved parmesan, arugula

We also tried the swordfish tacos. They were decent. A little on the drier side.
SWORDFISH TACOS
pineapple poblano salsa, shredded napa cabbage, avocado crema

Next time I’d definitely try the chicken and waffles off their brunch menu!

Pro Tip: The bartenders are awesome. If you are not sure what you’d like to drink, let them make a drink for you! Always awesome!

He Said: I had the Swordfish tacos, what i remember were awesome although we should ask my dog Lou about since he end eating the whole taco :). Drinks are on point here, I agree with she let the bar tenders give you the royal treatment and make you drunk or happy.

Grasshopper

General: Located in Allston, this vegetarian/vegan friendly Vietnamese cuisine is very different. Grasshopper comes with an extensive menu, where you are bound to find something worth the try. Pricing is fair, on the cheaper side, so if you’re low on cash, and in the Allston area, Grasshopper isn’t a bad stop. Located: 1 North Beacon St at Brighton Ave, Allston.
