Neighborhoods: Porter Square

2014 Winner: Cambridge Common

Not all neighborhood pubs are created equal. They all have beer, but not this thoughtfully assembled lineup of crafty stuff with a rotating cask selection. Burgers? Everywhere, but not these delicious, dripping patties delivered with sweet smirks. And though there’s live music elsewhere, the downstairs Lizard Lounge has an intimate charm. There’s no theme or shtick, but everything about this neighborhood favorite conveys one word: uncommon.
