Nerax is not as good as EBF in my opinion.
CBC was a lot of fun and arguably better than EBF, especially if you like sours.
Lol NERAX is a McPoyle family reunion with warm, flat beer and a cloud of farts.
I'm flying into Boston on Sunday afternoon, flying out Monday evening.
Is there something (just 1 suggestion for Sunday dinner) near the Harvard Square area that would have something local and great? Sorry, no time to do research -- I'll happily go to Yelp if this is a frequently-asked question.
It's been a few years since I've been to Harvard Square, but I remember Russell House Tavern was a great spot to eat, drinks were great as well. Not sure if it's what you have in mind and I'm sure you can get better recommendations from people still in the area.
Russel House, Beat Brasserie, Sinclair, Alden and Harlow, Waypoint are all right there in Harvard Square. A&H is my favorite, Waypoint is from the same owner but I haven't been.
IMHO Alden & Harlow is the best restaurant in Harvard Sq. Their tap list can sometimes be underwhelming, but they have a good wine program and the food is top-notch. Plenty of places nearby to have a drink, my favorite of which is Park Restaurant. Or, you're not far from Lord Hobo or even Cambridge Brewing Company.
Alden & Harlow is my favorite harvard sq restaurant too. Waypoint is great as well; same chef and bar manager but focused more on local seafood and vegetables. Cocktail list features absinthe. That guy is a magician behind the bar.
+1 on Alden & Harlow, Russel House and Park Restaurant. Waypoint also has excellent food. The tap list is small but mostly local and well curated. Last time I was there they had taps from Oxbow, Mystic, Mayflower. All of these options are pretty upscale.
The Lamplighter Brewery taproom is not far from Harvard Sq (a little over a mile). And if you are looking for something more laid back with a pub atmosphere, Cambridge Common is not far and has a large taplist with local options.
