Frequently asked questions
What Does "Estragon" Mean?
"Estragon" is the Spanish word for "tarragon." It is also the name of one of the principal characters in Samule Beckett's play Waiting for Godot.
Do you have Valet Parking?
We do not offer valet parking. In the SOWA neighborhood of the South End there tends to be ample on-street parking, and the meters on Harrison Avenue are free after 6pm. There is also an affordably-priced parking garage adjacent to the restaurant, accessible from Harrison Avenue.
I Don't Own A Car; How Do I Get There?
Estragon is within walking distance from bus and trolley lines. We are a 15 minute walk from the Mass. Ave. stop on the Orange Line, the Tufts Medical Center stop on the Orange Line, and from Copley Square station on the Green Line. You can also reach us by the #1 Bus (Harrison Avenue stop), or by the Silver Line (SL4) at the East Newton St. stop.
Can I Bring My Own Cake/Booze?
By law, we are prohibited from allowing alcohol purchased outside the restaurant to be consumed at Estragon. Baked goods are a different story! We offer an extensive dessert menu, but if you're celebrating a special occasion, you're welcome to bring your own cake or pastries. We do charge a $2/person plating fee.
I'm Vegan; Will I Go Hungry?
No! Our extensive tapas menu has many vegan, vegetarian and gluten/dairy-free options. Our manu clearly labels dishes that are vegan, vegetarian and gluten-free, as well as those containing dairy and nuts. Our servers will happily guide you in ordering according to your dietary restrictions (many of them are vegans and vegetarians themselves!).
