Named the “Best Brighton Neighborhood Restaurant” in 2016, Devlin’s is serving up traditional cuisine with an innovative twist, like their Chili Cheese Dog Egg Rolls. Craving something more classic? Their legendary wings are best complemented by one of their thirst-quenching beers, wines or creative cocktails. In the mood for a trivia night? Live music? Or simply socializing with their skilled bartender around their shipping container bar? Devlin’s has it all, just a half-mile from The Overlook.
Barcelona Wine Bar is known for its award-winning list of nearly 400 wines from more than 70 regions in Spain and South America. They serve up a crave-worthy menu of Spanish-centric tapas, large plates, and desserts. We highly recommend their Parillada Barcelona, a sharable meat platter always cooked to perfection. Head just a 5-minute drive away from The Overlook to enjoy unbeatable Patatas Brava and wine pairings on their lively, sun-drenched patio.
Brato Brewhouse is a Boston-based brewpub built on raw materials and local, sustainable sources. Their thoughtfully designed menu features creative, locally sourced dishes and an ever-evolving list of fresh and unique craft beers. Beat the summer heat, and enjoy a pint of their signature Brighton Hoppy or Beacon Light out on their brand-new, expansive patio. Located just over a mile away from The Overlook.
Keep your summer boredom at bay over at Lulu’s, a charming neighborhood hot-spot just over one mile from The Overlook. Brunch doesn’t get any better than their loaded french toast, breakfast totchos and a bucket of mimosas. Plus, they offer an incredible menu of over 50 well-curated beers. Their patio even features a bocce court for added entertainment.
Known as the first Latin American tapas restaurant in Brighton, Peka offers a serene patio dining experience less than a half-mile from The Overlook. They specialize in both classic and reinvented cuisines from Venezuela, Mexico and beyond. Between their unmatched service, friendly owner and impressive menu of signature cocktails (the Passionfruit Margarita is a must), this local gem offers the perfect ambiance for cooling down on a warmer summer evening.
Nothing says ‘summertime’ like winding down on the patio with a delicious meal and your favorite ice-cold drink in hand. Live just moments from some of Brighton’s best patio dining destinations when you schedule your tour of The Overlook at St. Gabriels today.
