Criff Dogs—a hot dog joint—was an institution even before PDT (Please Don’t Tell) came onto the scene. It’s one of the best bars in the city for fantastic cocktails dreamed up by owner Jim Meehan, whose book of recipes has brought good, old fashioned cocktails back into the modern lexicon. Plus, there are deluxe hot dogs on the menu to accompany your drinks. It’s a tiny, dark space, and the setting is intimate on purpose, so it can be hard to get a seat. Drop by early to put your name on the list—they’re great about giving you a call when a table is available. >>Photo: Noah Kalina
