Harvard Gardens Restaurant Review

: This Beacon Hill pub is a hangout for neighborhood preppies and other area residents. The menu starts with spiffed-up bar snacks --- think pork dumplings, firecracker shrimp and Kobe sliders with bacon aïoli, Muenster and a sunny side up quail egg --- and continues on with contemporary creations: how often do you belly up to a bar with a hankering for baked goat cheese dip? Still, more casual fare like a Wagyu beef burger, open-face turkey sandwich and a lobster grilled cheese with tomato basil soup go down easy with the usual slew of 'tinis.
