This little place in Harvard Square has become popular of late. The food is decent and the vibe kind of modern with some communal tables and some individual tables. The sign looks vaguely like a London Underground sign, and I wondered if I was supposed to feel somehow more Euro because of this. The food is good but not great, although not expensive, and the booze also good but not great...nice beers like Leffe and some very good value Spanish white wine.

Tory Row is right in the heart of Harvard Square, and it gets crowded very easily because of its prime location. If I get there and there's any sort of wait, I usually go somewhere else; the food isn't anything special and the seating arrangements are kind of odd. There are several long tables with cheap metal stools, and they pack people in so as many can fit at a table as possible. The only dish I've had that is above average is the chili - though it's not necessarily worth the $9 price.Recommended for:

I actually rather enjoyed Tory Row. I went twice, once for drinks and once for dinner. Their beer selection is pretty decent; I'm a fan of any restaurant that carries Leffe Blonde and Anchor Steam. I had the meatloaf sandwich for dinner. Unaware that it was a sandwich, I was a little apprehensive when it arrive at the table. Really, though, meatloaf+bacon+carbs = delicious. I'm not really sure why I was that thrown off; it ended up being a really great sandwich.
The space is a bit small, definitely. It tends to get a bit loud because of that. Its size also lends to creating a more lively atmosphere for the late-night crowd. I do kind of like the community tables. I'm not sure if I would ever come have dinner here alone, but the community tables certainly don't hurt for the solo diner in Harvard Square, an area that definitely seems to cater more heavily to large groups of students.
Between its location right across the street from the Harvard Square T station, its great selection of beer/wine, and relatively good food, Tory Row is always in season.
