Korean/Japanese cuisine. Not expensive but authentic, delicious and a classy decor. And, it's literally steps away. Beer on tap. Great place for lunch or dinner. My favorite dishes are the tofu Kimchee, the Ebi Donburi and the Korean Ramen. Vegetarian friendly.

Beer/wine/liquor store of choice. Some amazing less than $20 bottles of wine. They know their stuff. The kind of place you can get artisanal tonic water. Free tastings most Thursday evenings, Another one close by (on Benefit) is to be avoided.

Ken's Ramen, Red Fin Crudo & Kitchen, and Figidini Wood Fire Eatery are next to each other on Washington St. downtown. All three are great for dinner. All three don't take reservations. All three closed Mondays. I recommend walking over and seeing which one has room for you. Ken's is the cheapest, fastest and most popular of them. Red Fin as a dollar oyster happy hour during the week during the summer and Figidini has the best wood fired pizza in town.
