John Harvard’s Brew House US Map & Phone & Address

33 Dunster St, Cambridge; (617) 868-4341

Who says you can’t get into Harvard? This basement restaurant advertises honest food, real beer,” and that’s exactly what you get. It’s a favorite lunch haunt for businesspeople in the Square; daily lunch express specials are $5-$6, speedily delivered. Mine sampled a grilled pesto chicken sandwich on focaccia with roast peppers and artichoke hearts. Lots of burgers, too; more interesting is a blackened catfish sandwich for $6.25. Entrees, mostly $8-$9, range from a vegetable paella to chicken pot pie. The handsome, dark wood decor features roomy booths which encourage hanging out

Deciding what to eat is tough; picking a beer is even more challenging. As the name implies, John Harvard’s does its own brewing on the premises. There are several varieties of ale; the malty flavor of Dublin stout and more patriotic American lagers. Not for nothing was this place voted the Best Microbrewery in Boston by Boston magazine. John Harvard’s also offers live entertainment on Mondays from 9 p.m. to midnight, and Tuesdays from 10 pm. to 12:30 AM. with no cover charge. The restaurant itself is open for lunch and dinner daily.
