Burgers and Gravy Fries Near the Garden
You waited all summer.
You suffered through a bummer of a Sox season (next year, fellas). But starting next week
, the Celtics begin their title run.
And we know just where you can watch them...
Introducing The North Star
, your new neighborhood go-to
for cold beers and comfort food a stone’s throw away from the Garden, soft-opening tonight.
Brought to you by the guys behind Good Life bar downtown, the North Star rises up in the old DJ’s at the
Garden space, which shuttered this summer. They’ve added a few coats of paint, a DJ talent pool from Good
Life (so yes, things will get nightlife-y later on) and a dozen more flat-screens (all the better for
watching Shaq dunk on Cleveland).
You and a few buddies will want to don your choice C’s gear (or in a pinch, your office clothes), belly up
to the bar over a few pitchers and dig into the menu: everything from Drunken Mussels
sautéed in Guinness to lobster mac and cheese.
And if you’re looking to carb load, order the Gravy Fries
. They start with a pound-and-a-half of
sizzling salted fries, melt a mound of cheddar jack over them, then slather the whole thing with rich beef
gravy made in house.
Also known as: Shaq’s breakfast.
