Next stop: 3rd Street Station, a Beverly Center-adjacent eatery where the décor pays homage to train travel and the fare reflects Western European tapas bars. This brasserie may be an infant on a very grown-up block, but the restaurant’s social vibe, refined pub grub, and locomotive inspired drinks have the power, much like a long train ride, to spark lively conversations. So bring your best opening line and dawdle over the Euro draft beer list or full cocktail menu. At 3rd Street Station the only thing on the schedule is a good time.

You’ve been warned: The duck fat fries are addictive. Perfectly crisped, the spuds are sliced thick and laced with mouth-watering herbs and salt. The rich duck fat used during the simmering gives a faint, poultry-tinged finish that melds well with the malt vinegar-aioli combo dipping sauce. Cured olives are another sublime snack option, especially when paired with one of the many European beers. The deboned Jidori chicken thigh's crispy paprika, saffron, and cumin coated skin is rich in flavor, light on spice, and heavy on fresh vegetables like mushrooms, pearl onions, and mashed potatoes. For a smaller, shared bite try the crispy brussels sprouts. The taste of the scotch-soaked raisins, pork belly, and mustard will make you forget why you weren't so keen on the veggie as a kid. The hungrier should lean towards the pork belly panini, which comes stacked with fatty, tender meat layered with onion jam, local goat cheese, and peppery baby arugula. view full menu here

the crowd

Perfectly coifed thirty-somethings, along with the post-work crowd there for socializing first and the full-bar plus food second.

... on the side

Think modern industrial revolution—on a smaller scale. The quaint brasserie uses every inch of space in the form of booths, tables, and a smattering of outdoor bistro tables. Be sure to check out the cocktail selection featured on the flickering arrival/departure board.
