ou could be forgiven for expecting a dress code at a classy place like Green Street. After all, it’s the oldest continuously operating bar in Cambridge and it’s known for fancy cocktails with ingredients such as apricot liqueur. But manager Mark Young says, “We’re not here to be snobby like that. We just want to make people happy.” Owner Dylan Black cut his teeth as a bartender at the late, lamented B-Side, which was a launching pad for many of the key players in Boston’s cocktail renaissance. Green Street also serves well-crafted American food, but the real standouts here are the cocktails.
