Allow us to arrange an introduction: Boston, meet Back Bay Harry.
He's your new best friend in Bay Village.
You know, the kind of friendly dude who lets you unwind at his art deco pad for a few hours after work. When you walk in the door, he'll have tumblers of single malt whiskey and a plate of local oysters waiting for you.
Come solo, some with friends, come on a date — Harry's home is your home. And it's a beautiful one thanks to its designer, HGTV's Taniya Nayak, who dressed Harry in a vintage style that's as easy on the eyes as it is on the back. Case in point: sinking into that plush red leather chair along the marble bar.
And speaking of friends, you and Harry share a mutual connection: chef Jason Santos (of Abby Lane and Blue Inc. fame) adds creative flair to American comfort classics. He spritzes vodka into the fish and chips batter, some pastrami bolognese to go with the fresh squid ink pappardelle, and a rack of baby back ribs braised in Jack & Coke.
Or bypass all that and just come late for $1 oysters after 11p.
Harry's a damn good wingman, too.
