What made Silverman’s list? Here are some excerpts:
His take: “You go there, and it’s the real-deal, authentic bar with a jukebox. [There are] just very laid-back, very friendly people. [A] real neighborhood spot.”
His take: “If you’re looking for a newer place — it’s a little bit louder — try Mintwood Plac e. It is just terrific. Maybe better for a first date.”
“[Going there] on a first date is like a little like saying ‘I love you’ on a first date. If you don’t want somebody to be overwhelmed, if you just want to say, ‘You’re good looking,’ you can have a good time there.”
