More than 100 plasma televisions light up inside Sports Grille Boston, treating every diner to a front-row seat for the evening’s sporting events, many of which take place at the TD Garden across the street. The screens share wall space with sports memorabilia, including jerseys, hockey sticks, a Michael Jordan statue, and Ted Williams’s favorite paint color. The restaurant's extensive menu of bar food echoes its milieu with thematically named dishes such as Spud Webb potato skins, Larry Bird chicken, and Fenway sirloin tips, which the kitchen staff douses in a secret house marinade. To accompany each bite, bartenders keep up to 25 beers on tap alongside numerous brews in bottles, buckets, and pitchers.

"If you build it, they will come." This mantra would have served the owners of Hit Wicket well. Though cricket isn't very common on this side of the pond, they knew that there were devoted fans of the sport out there. So they adorned their tavern with cricket memorabilia—jerseys, bats, gloves—and began airing international matches. Soon their perseverance paid off, as hordes of diners, including reporters from the Boston Globe, started streaming in.
They fuel their patrons with food inspired by countries where cricket is most popular, serving up Trinidad roti wrap, Lankan biscuit pudding, and jamuns with ginger ice cream. Other sporting events include American football games and European soccer matches.
Incognito is part restaurant, part nightlife destination, where culinary wizards conjure up Mediterranean flavors that energize diners to indulge in a night of music, drinks, and dancing. An appetizer of little neck clams foreshadows feasts of grilled bacon blue burgers, shrimp mozambique, and rotating specials, such as baked stuffed scrod drizzled in béchamel. After polishing off their dinners, revelers can sip on sangria, head to the dance floor, and move their bodies to the sounds of resident DJs, live music, and the clack of nearby diners inspired to play the spoons.
While The Bar Room’s name might suggest the spot is solely a nighttime hangout, the crowd of people chewing with their mouths open during dinner hours proves otherwise. Long before the music, dancing, and late-night spilling contests begin, chefs craft an array of American-inspired dishes, such as fish and chips, spicy Cajun chicken, beer-basted pastrami sandwiches, and barbeque-chicken thin-crust pizza. Those sidled up at the bar don't need to keep their incisors sedentary, as bowls of housemade potato chips are available for complimentary crunching.
With 12 distinctive sauces coating their classic chicken wings and boneless tenders, the cooks at Wing Works Kitchen do their best to change people's perceptions of what chicken really tastes like. They pair their poultry with classic American flavors, such as mild buffalo sauce, complimented by a menu of burgers and fries. They also collect tastes from halfway around the globe, whipping up a Hawaiian-teriyaki sauce for their tenders and serving Korean spicy pork and sticky rice with a side of housemade kimchee.
In the dining room, a fleet of televisions invites neighborhood regulars to take in a Celtics or Bruins game while dipping the opposing team's jersey in a vat of their favorite sauce.
