Getting Rafiki

An Eco-Friendly Bistro Near Harvard

Wednesday. The silent killer.

On days like this, you want to shake things up. Throw a wrench in the spokes of life. And find a place with a name that's really fun to say.

Oh, and if it's ecologically responsible and serves wild boar, even better.

Introducing Rafiki Bistro, the new eco-aware tavern in your life, softly opening this Tuesday near Harvard.

If Al Gore ever opened a French bar, this is what it would look like. Swahili for "friend," Rafiki is sexy in all the right places (exposed brick, leather booths), yet much of its interior comes from reused materials (including the carpet you walk in on and the wood banquettes and barstools you discuss Greenpeace from).

Which means you'll want to escort a pretty little environmentalist in here some night in the near future and sink your teeth into a Free Range Beef Burger made using grass-fed beef from New Hampshire, or maybe a Dry Rubbed Rack of American Wild Boar from Texas (it's good to balance all that green-consciousness with some Southwest machismo).

Booze-wise, there are organic vodkas, gins and rums. And they've even got a solid late-night menu for small bites, should you stroll in hungry after a long evening spent picketing for environmental causes outside the state house.

Or thinking about the environment during a Sox game.
