Seven's - Beacon Hill

On Friday night Nick and I wanted to go out and watch the Bruins game, but were not interested in getting into the mess near the Garden.  Instead, we went to the Seven's Ale House, a very local Beacon Hill watering hole located right on Charles Street.  While I have been there to enjoy more than a few drinks from their fairly extensive beer menu (no hard stuff here) and played (or attempted to play) darts at the back of the long and narrow space, I have never actually eaten there.

I have attempted to watch games at the Sevens before, but it can be difficult to get a good space because the bar fills up quickly and the space does not lend itself to standing when its crowded.  Since the game started at 8:00 and it was one the first super nice days out, Nick and I headed over around 7:30 and had our pick of most of the tables in the bar.  We really were ready to settle in for the long haul and have a few drinks and a bite to eat. 

The menu offers a variety of sandwiches and wraps all at a great price point - nothing on the menu is over $10.  Considering this is Charles Street in Beacon Hill, that is pretty amazing!  Nick ordered the breaded chicken sandwich with a homemade honey mustard and Havarti on toasted wheat bread with a side of potato salad.

The Havarti and the honey mustard offered a lot of flavor and really kicked up the taste of what could have been a chicken and cheese sandwich.  The potato salad was good - really creamy with a bit of a sweet flavor. Nick liked it, but not being a mayo person, it was not for me.
I went fairly straight forward and got the hot pastrami sandwich with Cheddar cheese on sourdough bread with a side of chips.

Pastrami Sandwich
I love pastrami sandwiches and I love it even more when you can order just the pastrami and cheese. Rarely do you see them on menus - most of the time its a Ruben.  There was plenty of tasty meat on the sandwich and it hit the spot perfectly.  Both sandwiches made for a nice Friday night gearing up for the game.

There were plenty of people arriving over the next hour to watch the Bruins clinch the series!  The crowd was a combination of Beacon Hill locals and Beacon Hill prepsters - plenty of good people watching opportunities, that is for sure.  I may have to make a few more trips just in case it was our being at Seven's that allowed the Bruins to get the big W!

  2. I LOVE the Sevens! It's one of my "go to" bars- especially for game watching- though you're right-it is tough to position yourself there sometimes.

    I agree -it is one of the best spots for people watching!
