Sweet Cheeks Q in the Fenway
There's a lot to love about Top Chef runner-up Tiffani Faison's barbecue spot near Fenway Park, but the sun-soaked beer garden, with a retractable roof for rainy days, holds a special place in our heart.
Drink This: There's a very large list of bottled, canned and draft craft beers for sipping. But don't overlook the inventive cocktails (like the Kentucky Rosie of rye, pineapple, grapefruit and mint) served in cute mason jars.
Eat This: 'Cue from Q is on our bucket list of 30 Things You Must Eat & Drink This Summer, so we'd say to start with the Fat Cheeks Tray ($26) which lets you load up on three hot and three cold scoops of meats (the pulled pork is perfection) and sides (the mac 'n' cheese is a must).
Know This: Mondays. 9 PM. Ramen nights. Ssh.
