Bukowski Tavern in Back Bay probably has the only menu in Boston that swears at you, but you wouldn’t want anything else from a bar built as a loving tribute to the patron saint of angry drunk poets. If you don’t want to order one of the “f*cking specials,” settle in with the peanut butter burger and a draft beer (they have an excellent rotating selection of local craft brews) but keep in mind that this place is beer and wine only and doesn’t do credit cards.
