“We’re trying to create a place where people can hang out all day, no matter what their need or no matter what time,” Kingston Station owner Ky Nguyen told Boston Business Journal in 2011. When that need is a bit of unique food and some cold drinks, the bistro certainly delivers. The menu takes diners on a culinary tour of the world through chef Dana Love’s contemporary American interpretations of the classics, from roasted duck leg to steak frites. But the original creations here get most of the attention, especially sandwiches that include the salmon banh mi burger and the signature Station Burger with a sunny-side-up egg on top. The fact that about a dozen items are gluten-free only gives diners even more options. Just as he’d intended, Nguyen has made his restaurant comfortable enough to sit back and forget what time it is. Low lighting ensures that shadows play a role in the bar’s nighttime scenery. Subway-tiled walls and thick crown moulding seem to give the room the feel of a business from an earlier period in Boston’s history. It only helps that the bar stays open until 2 a.m. Wednesday though Sunday, making it a no-brainer stop for signature cocktails after a show in the nearby Theater District.
