Sidewalk Swagger

2018 Winner: Loco Taqueria & Oyster Bar


This swinging Southie joint doesn’t need much help attracting attention: The massive street-side windows, always filled with buzzing crowds of human tequila tankards, does that just fine. But shoutout to the spot’s sidewalk letter board, which eschews advertisements for pithy phrases concocted by the staff. Bon mots like “I avoid checking my bank account because what you don’t know can’t hurt you” and “Snow shoveling tip: Bend your knees and move to Los Angeles” grab our notice, get us inside and make fantastic Instagram fodder.
