From the team behind Ward 8 and North Square Oyster comes the newest addition to the West End, Bodega Canal. The Mexican spot opened on Monday, November 20th with a menu of fresh, fun and flavorful dishes from chef Kenny Schweizer including mole short rib with dirty rice and roasted green beans, buttered lobster tacos and queso fundido with chorizo and poblano rajas. Located right by TD Garden, it’s a perfect place for a pre- or post-game drink of margaritas, sangrias or South American and Spanish wines. You’ll love the atmosphere and the decor — their goal was to create the look of a timeworn Mexican mansion — with its reclaimed wood, weathered walls and (of course) a grand chandelier. For now, Bodega Canal is open for dinner daily (although word is that they’ll start lunch during December and weekend brunch eventually). Call 617.833.4885 to make a reservation.
