Bronwyn to bring Eastern European flare to Cambridge

Posted by Hillary Waldron on Tue, May 14, 2013

bronwynUnion Square in Somerville is known for its bars, eateries and history. That's why Bronwyn will be a wonderful addition to this neighbhorhood's already happening environment.  

Bronwyn's atmosphere is comfortable and contemporary. The owners, a husband and wife duo, plan to "pay homage to their German roots by serving food and drink inspired from the region" which will  include Bavarian sausages, riesling sauerkraut, pretzels and foie gras.

"This new spot has the potential of joining the already flourishing nightlife scene of Union Square. It plans to offer Eastern and Central European beers, but local beer fans don't fret -- American beers that are brewed in the European style will also be available. Craft cocktails, wines from central Europe, and schnapps will also make up the drink menu."

While Bronwyn opens May 15, you can start making reservations on May 11.

Gentleman to Dick. (I know, right?)

Posted by Katie Beth Clark on Tue, Jun 12, 2012

Hey, they said it first, so quit threatening to wash my mouth out!

If you are in for a thrilling afternoon or evening in Boston, this place is a must! For all of you gentlemen out there, if you are having trouble figuring out how to really drive your significant other crazy, then this place is a one stop tutorial! (make sure to bring your notepad!)

Make sure to keep your game face on because these waitors won't hesitate to forget that manners even exist. Their actions are distasteful, but you can't help but chuckle with confusion when your silverware is THROWN on the table, or you're ignored time and time again.
