Deep in the Heart of Allston

A taste of Texas in a Boston neighborhood



taste of Texas in Allston? Don’t tell those Boston Brahmins. At Deep Ellum, comfort food, home-style cookin’, great beer, and southern hospitality will transport you to the plains of Plano. And don’t let the down-home digs fool you: You can also order rosemary Cornish game hen ($16) while sipping Krusovice “cerne” Czech beer or any of the other taps that are in constant rotation (you can tell the staff takes pride in its diverse beer list). Along with the international drafts, this Texas gem—tucked discreetly among the cheap ethnic restaurants of Cambridge Street—offers sophisticated bar food. Gorgonzola truffle fries, anyone? Another secret: the “barbecue breakfast”: fried eggs over pulled pork and Texas (of course) toast Medoff


Texas and Massachusetts have at least one thing in common: They’ve been the homes of more presidential candidates than any other states. Since 1960, there have been candidates with Texas or Massachusetts ties in 11 of 13 presidential campaigns.
