Boda

Maybe you’ve been bar hopping, or maybe wherever you went for dinner was disappointing. Either way, some nights require a fourth meal, and when that happens, head to Boda near the West End for some Thai food and cocktails. This place stays open until 1am serving a wide variety of small plates, salads, and grilled skewers. However, if you’re craving pad thai or panang curry, they have that too. They don’t take reservations, but if there’s a wait, you can look through the menu over a drink at LFK across the street in the meantime. It’s hard to go wrong, but make sure you don’t forget the spicy wings and grilled quail eggs.

When you need to get away from the Old Port, head to Isa in Bayside for pasta, seafood, and some quiet.

Izakaya Minato on Washington Ave.’s menu includes sashimi, fried chicken, and udon for when you want Japanese food and are also being indecisive.
