Clerys' Irish poutine (©Brian Samuels Photography)
This is a neighborhood bar your Irish grandma would be proud to call her own. Interior is chic and comfortable befitting its Back Bay digs, and the menu is entirely scratch-made. Clerys' reputation as a sports bar means wings and nachos are necessary, but foodies also love the Dublin chicken curry soup and Guinness beef stew. Open daily 11 am-2 am.
