A conversation with Naomi Levy of Better Sorts Social Club

By Kara Baskin Globe correspondent,Updated June 24, 2019, 8:21 p.m.

Naomi Levy moved to Boston from the Washington, D.C., area in 2005, going on to work at high-profile places: She was on the team that opened Cambridge’s late, lamented Hungry Mother; she was also the bar manager at Kenmore Square’s Eastern Standard for six years. Now she’s beverage director at Better Sorts Social Club, a bespoke cocktail bar inside the Kimpton Nine Zero Hotel downtown. Despite those swanky surroundings, though, she’s content with eggplant parmesan ... in East Cambridge..

If you had to eat your last meal in Boston, what would it be? 


Eggplant parm with noodles on the side with alfredo sauce at the

East Side Bar Grille, not to be confused with the East Coast Grill.

It’s a small Italian-American spot with a giant Frank Sinatra picture. They make comfort-food eggplant parm the way I want it.
