Wink & Nod
Plush, atmospheric bar with global bites
South Asia · South End · $$
With a nod to the Prohibition era, this South End speakeasy pours craft cocktails in festive glassware paired with Eclectic cuisine-hopping eats from the latest inhabitant of a culinary incubator program that offers temporary residency to roving pop-up concepts. Rendered in reds and golds with snakeskin-backed seating, black leather banquettes and zebra rugs, the sensuous setting is equally transporting.

Lovely ambience, great for date nights as recommended on Seated, especially on weekdays as it can get crowded on weeknights. The menu changes often due to their incubator rotation so I can’t make any recommendations. Everything ordered in the past has been great, so definitely don't be scared to try something new!

- Noisy. Couldn't hear each other talk across our 2-person table. - Ordered a side dish (Brussels) that we didn't get, but showed up on the bill. They were nice enough to remove it from the bill after we pointed it out. - Olive starter had a nice presentation, but the brine liquid was sweet, which ruined the olives IMO. - Pickled mussels had a nice acidity but were under-salted. - Chicken empanadas were disappointingly bland - Paella was a very small portion for the price and was very oily. Shrimp were overcooked. They did get a good crust on the rice, but that's the only redeeming quality of this dish. Not related directly to the restaurant, but when we got our car back from the valet, it had a parking ticket on it.

Although the menu changes, the food is consistently very good. It's also never too crowded, and the bartenders make great drinks (they change to match the menu). It can be easy to miss because the sign is small and the restaurant is located below street level.
