You had so much fun sucking back pinot grigio on the Acela that you almost considered riding the rails full time.
Live that dream (in name alone) at Lord Hobo, opening tomorrow in Cambridge.
The cozy spot in the old B-Side Lounge space has dark concrete floors, mellow lighting, and booths made from African sapele wood (which has a natural, squiggly stripe).
On the menu, American bistro fare — Painted Hills sirloin with marrow butter, gorgonzola whipped potatoes, and watercress; Maine lobster mac ’n’ cheese; and shepherd’s pie with braised lamb, root vegetables, and colcannon. This place doesn’t even have a freezer. It’s all that fresh.
Wash it down with nearly four score of beer, like a High & Mighty or an Eku, or a cocktail like the Loo Loo (citrus vodka, orange liqueur, grapefruit juice, and prosecco).
Just don’t get off track.
Lord Hobo, 92 Hampshire Street, Inman Square (617-250-8454 or lordhobo.com).
