Leave it to the minds behind Trenchermen and the Barrelhouse Flat to dream up one of the boldest launches of the year. This spacious neighborhood bar offers sgroppinos (sorbet- like vodka and prosecco concoctions), amaro cocktails, and savory Pleasant House Bakery pies, plus a revolving list of whiskeys and craft beers. Don’t be fooled by its 2,500-square-foot sprawl: In true Randolph Row fashion, the booths and stools fill fast on weekends, leaving some drinkers lurking awkwardly in the entry- way. Get there by nine.

Who’s there: Girl & the Goat reservation holders before dinner; cocktail scenesters later

What to order: Giralamo Sour
