Green Street

280 Green St.
Cambridge, MA, 02139, United States
TEL: (617) 876-1655

Housed in a nondescript brick building in Central Square, Green Street first opened during the Great Depression and holds Cambridge’s longest-standing liquor license. The more casual first floor bar is decorated with strings of white lights, while the larger dining room upstairs is more formal, with dark wooden tables and colorful paintings. The kitchen serves New England comfort food such as mac and cheese and spicy clam stew, but the cocktails are the real focus. The restaurant is known for inventive drinks like the Fort Washington Flip, made with applejack, Benedictine, Vermont maple syrup, a whole egg, and nutmeg.

Insider Tip:

The regular cocktail menu lists around 15 drinks, but ask for the “big list” for a wider range to choose from. This extended menu has 100 different cocktail options.
