The Brahmin's pays homage to Boston's elite socialites of the early 20th century. Likewise, its sophisticated decor includes tufted banquettes and a wraparound copper bar. The menu further mirrors the elegant vibe with small plates of New American cuisine alongside handcrafted cocktails. This blend of classic and contemporary has caused media outlets to take notice.
"The narrow brick and cream-colored main room, with its plush leather booths, sparkling chandeliers, antique books, and flowing curtains draped over mottled glass windows, gives off an aura of old world sophistication. But a soundtrack of 80s rock and one-hit wonders, as well as a dinner menu of sharable bar snacks like fried pickles and messy ribs, foster a casual vibe." – Party Earth
"Modeled after a Back Bay brownstone — it features exposed-brick walls, chandeliers, and tufted brown banquettes — this place calls to mind a New England manse at the turn of the 19th century. But everything else is thoroughly modern, including the shared plates — tuna tartare and steak frites, among others — and the flirty cocktails." – Boston Magazine
" The cocktail list augments the theme by borrowing monikers from Brahmin boldfacers, like the Crowninshield Manhattan (a Fernet- and St-Germain-spiked spin on the original) or the Saltonstall (with bourbon, raspberry puree and lime). It’s a gimmick that could’ve backfired, but something about these old names finding sanctuary at a bar doesn’t seem too contrived." – Improper Bostonian
