I've never been to Scotland, but I can't imagine enjoying it more than The Haven. Of the several selling points, atmosphere is likely the strongest. I find that I smile readily and for some strange reason want to discuss things, even mundane and boring things - and I want to discuss them a little louder and more passionately than normal. I don't know if it was well thought out or just worked out; but everything from the lighting to the decor to the layout synergizes to give a refreshingly cozy feel. The people are great, patient, knowledgeable, are friendly. The pickled specimens along with this dense, grainy, soft flat bread-type appetizer that are reflexively placed on each table are unique, delicious, and truly invite one to be a bit more open-minded about their eating and drinking experience. There are classic Scottish dishes and also the best burger I've tasted in Boston. The beer selection is diverse enough to please a variety of palettes. The Haven became our go-to venue to take out-of-town visitors since we moved to JP. We have repeated this recipe for a fun and lively evening several times; our guests are consistently impressed.
