Craigie on Main
Vodka makes it from the front door of o ya in Boston to our table at Craigie on Main in Cambridge in exactly 23 minutes, impressive when you consider that Vodka is not from Boston, does not quite understand their public transportation system, and still believes that Cambridge consists only of Harvard's campus. We believe this is proof that Vodka can get just about anywhere in a very limited amount of time if armed with her iPhone map and the knowledge that dinner awaits her.

The verdict on the cocktails? Well, frankly, Craigie, stashing some blueberry vodka in your back cabinets wouldn't do much harm now, would it?

I'm sure my friends on the MegaBus would just love if I brought a skeletal chicken along.

1. It is, at $74, hardly a bargain, even when split between two people.
2. While I would come back to Craigie on Main to eat, I wouldn't insist on eating the chicken again. In fact, I'd probably insist on trying something else, simply because...
3. ...it is still JUST A CHICKEN. We don't like to order chicken. Chicken is boring. We can make chicken ourselves. So yes, Craigie on Main's is the most delicious variety to date, but they can't overcome the mere nature of the ingredient itself.
And to be honest, a flavored vodka or two wouldn't have hurt either.
