Despite the fact that you can get a very serious dinner here (burger, steak, oysters, etc.), Extra Fancy feels less like a restaurant and more like a neighborhood bar. It’s a spot to meet up with friends for some casual drinks and/or maybe talk to a stranger late at night. They also serve food until 2:30am., so if you’re hungry past midnight, stop by and eat a lobster roll at the bar. This is a great place to either start or end your night, and there’s also a nice yard for summertime drinking.
