Cheap Eats: 33 Restaurant & Lounge

Drinks and snacks at the bar are a great way to unwind at the end of the day, but the food and drinks can add up fast. Many restaurants in Boston take this into account and have developed special bar menus for these economic times. 33 Restaurant & Lounge's $3 Menu is just one delicious example.

33's new menu features a wide range of snacks and heartier dishes. It's easy to cobble together a full meal from these plates for under $10. Pictured above are the grilled lamb chops, three perfectly cooked lollipops with barely any fat on 'em, with a savory cheese fondue. Other 3 for $3 choices include crostini (one each of olive, mushroom and caprese), pita with dips (baba ganoush, hummus and tzatziki), and sliders (which are huge and definitely a great value). Avoid the tomato, basil, and mozzarella stacks - it's not tomato season, so try something else. Other choices on the menu include a standard side or Caesar salad, truffle French fries (crispy, salty, and addicting, and unctuous, filling mac & cheese.

The 3 for $3 menu is available on Wednesday and Thursday from 5pm to 7pm (at the bar and high tops in the back of the room) and Friday and Saturday from 8pm to 11pm (in the lounge). 33 Restaurant & Lounge is at 33 Stanhope Street, right by the Back Bay Station.
