Onto the meal....
Like I said, it was busy when we got there so we had to stand for a bit. What was really nice, though, was that Radius had bartenders circulating through the bar area to help out people like us. There was no need to try and cram in at the bar to get a drink, making for a much more relaxed environment. For our first drinks, we went pretty basic: Grey Goose and tonic for me and a Dark and Stormy for Nick (shocking right?!) Nick said the ginger beer in the dark and stormy had a strong flavor, more so that others he has had. By the time we finished our first drink, a table opened up for us.
Knowing we were getting half priced burgers, we indulged on our second drinks as well. This time we went with the cocktail menu because it had a couple of great options for both of us - vodka for me, gin for Nick. I settled on the Havisham's Dream, which is Absolut Citron, pear liqueur, rose water and a splash of bubbles- where the bubbles come from, I do not know.
When it came time to order food, there was no thought needed, and we both ordered the burger.

This burger quickly climbed the ranks of Nick's favorites, beating out Back Bay Social Club and a close second to Sel de la Terre. For me however, Moo... and Back Bay Social Club still are tops.
Between the drinks, the food, and the warm atmosphere, Radius is worth the trip. If you are a horseradish fan, the burger would be right up your alley.
