Fork in the Road’s Favorite Dive Bars


It’s time for Tuesday Toasts, our weekly feature highlighting the Fork in the Road team’s favorite versions of popular dishes and favorite spots in the city for a given activity. They might not be the best or the coolest or the newest, but instead represent the things and places that are near and dear to our hearts. Will the team have wildly diverging opinions, or do great minds think alike? There’s only one way to find out. Up this week: Our Favorite Dive Bars.

“Mars Bar, sniff sniff!” –Robert Sietsema

“It’s not truly a dive bar, but it does have a ton of dust and played a dive bar in After Hours, so the Ear Inn.” –Rebecca Marx

“Fish Bar. It’s nautically themed, and they often have free snacks at the bar. Plus cheap drinks — what more do you need?” –Lauren Shockey

“Milano’s.” –Chantal Martineau
