It may have started at the corner bar, but the trend toward value-laden happy hours has arrived at even the high-end restaurants. The latest hotspot to hop onboard: Downtown 140
, Shawn and Tiffany Monday’s much honored restaurant and wine bar in Hudson.
From 5 to 7 p.m. each Monday through Thursday, a mere $7 is enough to score a glass of the featured wine and one of the Chef Shawn’s zesty starters. While the offerings change weekly, the recent retinue included such tidbits as tempura shrimp; crispy calamari; a chargrilled flatbread pizza with prosciutto and Fontina; and an organic-chicken spring roll, with peanut slaw and miso dipping sauce.
But don’t wait too long: The deal only extends through August. --- Elaine T. Cicora
