The Quiet Few is a restaurant that intentionally masks itself as a dive bar. It has all the usual bar food suspects, but you have the option to add on some unusual things too. If you want Cheez Whiz on your waffle fries or caviar on top of your burger, for example, you can do that here. There’s also a whiskey list with almost 100 different pours. It can get loud and busy here on the weekends, or if there’s an important sporting event on one of the many TVs. But it’s worth coming during those times anyway, because there’s nothing else like it in East Boston.
