Fodor's Review

Writer Sebastian Junger (The Perfect Storm) is one of the owners of this would-be literary mecca. We say "would-be," because the ambience can be more publike than writerly—and that's fine, since the King draws such a friendly crowd (media types, mostly). We like it best for its frequent readings, gallery exhibits, and Irish-American menu.
