Buttermilk & Bourbon, Back Bay, Boston

I had been hearing a little buzz about a relatively new restaurant on Commonwealth Ave called Buttermilk & Bourbon.  It was time to try it out. On Saturday evening, my Uber dropped me off at the historic Back Bay Vendome building.  I was transported back to the late 90s when I first moved to Boston and would frequent a basement level restaurant and bar, which for the life of me I can’t remember the name of – help if you know?  They used to show old movies in their backroom on Monday nights where I would take myself to...
