If your idea of a German place is fixed on sausages served to large communal tables by dirndl-wearing waitresses, then Bronwyn is going to surprise you. There are sausages (and a few large tables) but this place is much cooler than the type of spots that look like they belong in a theme park called Deutschland Land. The furniture looks like it came from a church liquidation sale (which, knowing the history of the Catholic Church in Boston, it very well may have), and it’s got a great beer garden for the warmer months. Check it out on Tuesday nights, when they feature a different kind of footlong hot dog every week. They’re always on pretzel buns, but the toppings could include anything from Cheeze-Its to vinegar-braised beef brisket.

Machu Chicken

Machu Chicken is a casual Peruvian spot in Union Square that makes great chicken, which is good, because otherwise it’d have to change its name.
