Back Bay: The Salty Pig

June 13, 2012

If you’re near the Back Bay station and looking for something nice yet affordable, go to The Salty Pig just across Dartmouth.

The À bientôt tastes like a grown-up lollipop, quietly bitter instead of sweet but fruity – Aperol, Apricot, Rosé, and Soda. It didn’t need the ice.

Spot-on bread with lovely olive oil. My roommate got Pinot Noir (I think), $7 by the glass, $30? $35 by the bottle. Considering how short his pour was, I almost wish we had just gotten the bottle.

More wonderful bread. Spicy salami. Chocolate salami – funky, not necessarily in a bad way but definitely different. Pickled peppers – terrifically piquant. Weaker pickles – perhaps intentionally soothing? Grainy mustard destined to be eaten with charcuterie. Give me more, more I say!

My roommate wanted to make sure I knew about the bathrooms wallpapered in The Far Side comics. Now you know too.

Come here as soon as you can. Come here when you have friends visiting Boston and they have just finished strolling along Newbury or done some shopping on Boylston. Come here if you’re waiting for the train and get a delicious cocktail.
