Brick and Mortar: Why You Should Go
There hasn’t been that many times when we have walked into a new place and felt like it was truly special. Brick and Mortar of Central Square in Cambridge is one of those places. Here are a few reasons why we feel you should go.
Exposed brick. Everywhere.
Plethora of seating.
Drink rail on bar area, for those who prefer to stand.
Appropriate lighting. Enough to see the menu, yet still sexy.
Coat rack at host stand.
Large bar; horseshoe shape and topped with copper. Stunning.
Hooks under bar AND under the side rails.
Chilled cocktail glasses.
Good music with even better acoustics: Quiet enough to have a conservation, loud enough to not hear everyone elses’ conversations.
Crafty yet simple draft beer selection (Pretty Things Jack D’Or, Smuttynose IPA, Berkshire Brewing Co. Pale Ale, Guineness Stout, Cambridge Amber, Notch Session Ale, High and Mighty Beer O’ Gods; $6).
Accessibility. Right off Central Square T stop; one block from parking garage and lot.
Bar bites. Great for sharing.Duck Hash (sliced breast, pork sausage, spuds & duck demi;$12), Crostini (chopped eggs, bacon & thyme; $9 for 2)
An Aged Grappa cocktail. A perfect way to end your evening.
We are already looking forward to our next time there.
