What may be even more exciting than the new music venue that just opened in Harvard Square, The Sinclair, is the new restaurant that opened along with it. Between the gastropub-style Michael Schlow menu, fantastic cocktail program by Dave Werthman of West Side Lounge and a kitchen that's open til 1am, The Sinclair restaurant is so much more than just a pre or post concert meeting spot, it's a dining destination in itself.
After a number of visits to the Sinclair I've tried almost all of the small plates. That is definitely your best bet when meeting up for a quick snack and a drink with friends. Here are some of my favorites (plus one dessert for good measure):
Not pictured: the Kale Salad with golden raisins, sunflower seeds and crispy parsnips that never seems to last long enough for its photo op.
The Sinclair is great for a number of occasions. The downstairs bar area has communal tables that are perfect for drinks and a snack, and the upstairs dining room provides a better setting for dinner. Did I mention they also have brunch? What's not to love about this place?
