7. Ticonderoga Club


While co-owner Greg Best maintains, “We’re not a bar,” one of the principal reasons to visit this whimsical Krog Street Market eatery—besides the celebrated clam roll—is the chance to tipple cocktails prepared by Best and fellow star mixer Paul Calvert. There’s only a handful of bar seats, so come prepared to sit at a table; part of the fun is checking out the nautical-kitsch décor and cheeky club manifestos scattered about.
