Russell House Tavern

2012 Best Harvard Square Restaurant, Neighborhood

Just as good for a boisterous brunch as it is for an evening gabfest over Moscow Mules, Russell House Tavern is an ideal spot for every social objective. There are late-night $1 oysters, a patio, a choice of two bars, and a welcoming basement dining room. Plus, the staff is remarkably child-friendly, even to infants. Oh, and the food? Executive chef Michael Scelfo offers the diverse menu you’d expect, from a sloppy pork-loin sandwich to a silky foie gras-Laphroaig terrine.
