Bistros are remarkable in that they somehow manage to be both fancy and casual at the same time, much like a necktie with Taz on it. Feel gussied up without too much fuss with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gourmet pizza with Hungarian flare at Boston's Bistro & Pub.
This cozy cabin of comestibles keeps human food processors happily grinding on Hungarian-inspired fare while relaxing in a low-key environment. Delectable dishes include the smashed spuds pizza, made with paprika mashed potatoes, cheddar cheese, smoked bacon, and a side of sour cream (up to $11.60), and the Magyar delight pizza, featuring marinated Hungarian chicken breast, creamy Alfredo sauce, smoked bacon, spinach, tomatoes, and feta cheese (up to $13.60). Hungarian-style pizza toppings and panini bridge the culinary gap between America and paprika-filled cimbaloms. Though not covered by the Groupon, Boston's also has craft beers that are selected daily. Dust off old shoeboxes full of quantum theories and gemstone knowledge to show off during Smart Trivia Wednesdays with Tyler Entertainment.
Boston's Bistro and Pub
Boston's Bistro and Pub takes beer seriously—17 taps pour a rotating selection of global craft brews, and the beer list teems with more than 100 bottles. A beer garden gives its brews a place to roam outdoors, and an onsite brew school teaches beer enthusiasts the finer points of brewing while instilling etiquette and charm into rowdy porters and stouts. Owner David Boston balances this passion for beer with his family's Hungarian heritage, serving a bistro menu of traditional magyar kolbasz sausage, pork kraut, kosher soft pretzels from Rinaldo's Italian bakery, and Zwack slaw and incorporating European meats and cheeses into paninis, pizzas, and spinach salads.
David Boston and his pub trace their history back through the coal mines of West Virginia and the factories of Ohio, en route to West Dayton, where in 1927 David's ancestors set up their own business, the Ole Time Bar, on Fifth Street. Boston's Bistro and Pub is the family's latest culinary enterprise, now carrying the torch for fine, frothy brews and Magyar delicacies for more than 30 years.
