Boston – Green Dragon Tavern

Posted by jwpiper on January 27, 2009

Most of my trips (even before I realized it) to Boston include a visit to the Green Dragon Tavern. Its proximity to The Union Oyster House and North End paired with cheap lobster make it a must visit. The beer isn’t much to speak of, but usually, there are specials for 1.25lb lobster for $13/14 or if not lobster rolls for $13. I usually opt for the steamed lobster, but today I had to keep my fancy clothes on, so I went for the less-likely-to-make-a-mess lobster roll. Lots of prime lobster meat just barely held together by mayonnaise with just enough celery for crunch in the nook of a tosted roll. Pretty delicious.

The space is cozy, the service fast and curt. With the money you save, get some pricey oysters next door at the Union Oyster House or finish your meal with a half mile walk to Mike’s Pastries in North End for some delicious cannoli and coffee.
