Audubon Circle: A Bar for Grownups Near Fenway Park

Venture away from the rowdiness around Fenway Park to Audubon Circle, a sleek neighborhood bar/restaurant that attracts a diverse thirty-something crowd of postgrads, white collars and scrubs from the nearby Longwood Medical area.

It’s a style-conscious space- with dark wood paneling, muted lighting, and comfortable banquettes all dominated by a beautiful slate bar- one of the city’s longest. The tight quarters are always crowded but the friendly staffers work hard to be heard over the retro music mix in the background and the flat-screen tuned to the game.

The cuisine is unfussy New American and features dishes like baby barbecue ribs with collard greens ($14), pork schnitzel with arugula ($13), and a cheeseburger ($9) that is one of the city’s best. The must-order apps here are the Asian pot sticker box ($9) which comes to the table in a Chinese take-out container and the a silky white bean puree with grilled bread ($5).  Above the bar, a huge chalk board lists an impressive list of the day’s  beers-  which along with the food are so reasonably priced that surely you can order another and stay for a while.
