If you are looking for the best of both worlds in drinking and dining, then Tremont647 and Sister Sorel is the spot for you! Open candelabras, filthy martinis, intimate seating and very friendly regulars makes Sister Sorel a great spot for pre-dinner drinks! In the dead of winter, no need to run out to the cold to make your dinner reservation. Connected through the bar, take a step into Chef Andy Husbands Tremont647. The restaurant menu features one of our favorites: a Greek Style Wood Grilled Ahi Tuna Salad $19.
You might also enjoy the $2.00 Taco Tuesday night. The Livin’ La Vida Coco $10.50: featuring a house infused Pineapple vodka, Bacardi rum, Coco Lopez, Pineapple juice & a Meyer’s float all served in a pineapple (took us back to our Spring Break days, ahhh.)
HINT: Try the Chefs 5 Course Tasting menu for just $45.00. We aren't joking, it is one of the best deals in town!

Looking for something different in Harvard Square? Look no further than Om. Featuring authentic artwork and artifacts from Nepal, Tibet and Thailand, Om is worth a visit for the magnificent decor alone. However, that didn't stop us from ordering our fair share from the enticing Asian fusion inspired menu. We started with the warm roasted locally grown pear salad complimented perfectly with spiced pumpkin seeds and a delicious sweet ginger vinaigrette dressing. Be sure not to miss their signature app which is an order of Momos, or Tibetan style steamed dumplings. We tried all three flavors, beef, pork and vegetable which are served with soy sake and sweet chili sauces.
We also loved the Chinese BBQ Tofu, served crispy with Chinese broccoli and Himalayan red rice; and the Lamb Ribs which are sweet and spicy, served with crumbled cashews and a cool cucumber salad.
HINT: Try one of Om's "aromatherapy" cocktails, a hot new trend in mixology, which are infused with lavender, jasmine, lemongrass and rose. We had the Purple Rain, essentially a mojito with fresh lime, mint, blackberries and a hint of lavender. Yes, it is as good as it sounds.
