If you are looking for a great burger in a hip and fashionable setting, this Kenmore Square establishment fits the bill. Most of the food served here is grilled and there are some interesting selections, including grilled shrimp in citrus sauce or tuna with banana salsa. The brainchild of the owners of the Cambridge's Miracle of Science , the Audubon Circle Restaurant Bar's prices are more than affordable.
awesome setting, inexpensive food.
great for dates
try the turkey sandwich with bacon
and the empinadas.
small and intimate, tall ceiling so it doesn't feel closed in.
not a kid place.
Audubon is the perfect after-work bar for an inexpensive bite to eat, great cocktails and an decent beer selection. Even though there are a lot of hard surfaces, the sound is damped well enough to have a comfortable conversation without having to yell over the music. Here's my list of attributes:
-Bloody Mary's (the use a hint of curry and olive juice)
-Vodka Gimlets (make sure to ask for fresh lime juice)
-Jerky Turky Sandwich
-Chipoltle Ketchup for the roasted potatoes
-Flourless choc. cake
-Red Sox games on plasma without a sports bar feel (volume on mute)
Audubon Circle is Boston's best kept secret. Located a stone's throw from Fenway Park, Audubon Circle is the one of Boston's best places to go for drinks and dinner, especially if you are in the mood for a burger. Another great menu item are the grilled dumplings that are served with grilled vegetables. Audubon is a terrific place to have great martinis. The bar staff is young, curteous, and very attractive. The music on Friday nights is also really good. If you're looking for a great place to have a drink after work or on a weekend night, you can't go wrong with Audubon Circle.
One of my favorite spots in the neighborhood. They've recently added some new items to the menu. The reuben sandwich is terrific, as is the interesting brie and green apple sandwich. Both worth trying!!! Portions are generous and the beer is pretty darn good too.
It's worth the time, energy, and expense (though it certainly isn't prohibitively expensive - a sandwich with salad run about $8)...my biggest complaint is that it gets crowded quickly and it's sometimes difficult to carry on a conversation.
Cheap burgers and wine in a swanky but casual atmosphere.

Burgers are awsome and the menu also includes unique taste combinations... including veggie options. All menu items are resonably priced. It's a great place to go for a first date or a nice bite before/after a movie at the Fenway theaters. Overall service is average (just as any college-area bar is) - some staff are better than others. I've never had a bad experience.
Looking at its decor and limited menu, this restaurant appears to want to be upscale; however, the ambience is strictly college pub-style. I ordered a bottled beer, and was required to drink from the bottle because the waiter never came back to give me a glass. I had to surrender my credit card upon ordering the beer so that they'd keep a tab open for me. The place was very noisy, and the setup of the tables seemed to contribute to that (along all the walls, with nothing in the middle). The service was slow and uncaring. I had the ribeye steak, which was good and prepared just how I like it...but it wasn't worth all the other indignities I experienced.
