Why It's Hot: In April, Tavern Road's main menu tweaked to better reflect the more casual, whimsical fare that was being purveyed at its annexed grab-and-go concept, TR Street Foods. The Fort Point joint from brothers Louis and Michael DiBiccari has already hosted a vibrant late-night bar scene that seems particularly popular with industry types. The new dinner menu, spotlighting noshes like lamb meatball gyros and Korean BBQ chicken wings, feels like a more appropriate setup for that kind of scene.
Must-Drink: For a tropical summery treat, opt for the Lassi, made with rum, puréed mango, yogurt and pineapple.
