Boston’s The Brahmin has been described as “the only place in town with both crystal chandeliers and tater tots.” If you think that sounds magical, you’re not alone — it’s the winner of Boston's Most Visited Restaurant in our 2015 Lyftie Awards.
This trendy venue gets its name from “the Boston Brahmins,” a 19th-century term for the elite upper class. But you don’t need to be an aristocrat to have a good time here. It’s a classy space with moderately-priced drinks, a killer selection of small plates (Exhibit A: short rib grilled cheese bites), and a dance floor that doesn’t quit. Pro-tip: Looking to have a mellow dinner? Come a bit earlier, as the place transforms into a lively nightclub around 10 on the weekends. Or embrace it, grab a few cocktails, and dance off those tater tots.
