Trina’s is a retro-ish restaurant in Inman Square that feels like a dive bar, and that’s reason enough to come here. But there are also good cocktails (we like the one with black tea-infused bourbon and ginger cognac), a hot dog special every day, and a solid brunch spread on the weekends. If you prefer a sports bar to a dive bar, Parlor Sports is right next door, and it shares the same kitchen with Trina’s.
