The 11 best steakhouses in Boston

By Boston Chauffeur

Timeout has published an article about the “The 11 best steakhouses in Boston.”

  1. Grill 23 & Bar – 161 Berkeley St. Boston – Perhaps the city’s most famous steakhouse, Grill 23 has hosted countless business dinners and special occasions. High ceilings, marble columns, white tablecloths, and white-jacket clad waiters all contribute to the big-ticket atmosphere.
  2. Boston Chops – 1375 Washington St. Boston – The expansive menu kicks off with raw bar items and hot and cold starters, and contrarians can skip the prime steaks and chops, not to mention seafood dishes, in favor of the “rarely celebrated” section. Here, diners can sample chicken-fried sweetbreads, grilled marinated beef heart, and tongue that the kitchen brines, braises, and then grills. Classic starters include oysters and popovers, although the star might be the massive tower of thick onion rings.
  3. The Capital Grille 10 Wayside Rd. Burlington – The steaks here are enormous even the filet mignon starts at 10 ounces and the sides equally decadent (think creamed spinach with extra Bechamel sauce). The Chef Suggestions are even more over the top: seared tenderloin with butter poached lobster tails and a porcini-rubbed bone-in rib eye with 15-year-old balsamic vinegar (the restaurant’s signature dish).
  4. Mooo  15 Beacon St. Boston – The name of this Beacon Hill steakhouse is the first clue that the restaurant doesn’t take itself too seriously, boasting a playful style born out in the funky black-and-white cow art that adorns the dining room. The kitchen churns out juicy, perfectly prepped sirloins, rib-eyes, and filets.
  5. Strip by Strega  64 Arlington St. at Park Plaza, Boston – Located in the Park Plaza Hotel, the restaurant fuses together a modern steakhouse with a high-end lounge. A mix of hotel guests and see-and-be-seen types sit next to one another while dining on big-ticket steaks and enjoying pricey selections from a solid wine list.
  6. Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House – 250 Northern Ave. Suite 200, Boston – Del Frisco’s offers one of its most visually striking locations on Liberty Wharf in the Seaport District. The lengthy, varied menu is packed with USDA Prime beef and fresh seafood. The impressive wine list boasts over 1,500 selections from around the world. The 14,000 square foot, 400 seat restaurant has a 40 seat circular bar & lounge area, 70 seat outdoor veranda, and three distinctive private dining rooms. The cuts here are expensive but divine.
  7. Smith & Wollensky Boston – Atlantic Wharf – Tufts Building, 294 Congress St. Boston – a stunning waterfront location at Atlantic Wharf, between the Rose Kennedy Greenway and Fort Point Channel. The 10,000-square-foot space features an outdoor patio that adds to the relaxed, upscale ambiance. The exposition kitchen provides culinary entertainment while lush furnishings of wood and leather create a cozy and inviting interior retreat. Dry-aged Black Angus cuts sit atop most tables, alongside sinful sides.
  8. Ocean Prime  140 Seaport Blvd. Boston – One of the city’s best steakhouses, it’s a national chain best known for its seafood, the raw bar and sushi offerings are top-notch. Dry-aged steaks, from a bone-in filet to a 16-ounce ribeye, are all seared at 1,200 degrees. Steaks come with “accessories” like black truffle butter or blue cheese crust, along with traditional sides like creamed spinach and asparagus with hollandaise.
  9. Abe and Louie’s  793 Boylston St. Boston – As one of the Back Bay’s most popular special occasion restaurants, Abe and Louie’s understands the allure of the classic chophouse and delivers on every level: red banquette booths, dark wood paneling, and prime Midwestern steaks aged at least 30 days on the bone.
  10. The Bancroft –  15 3rd Ave. Burlington – The beautifully appointed glass and iron space places an emphasis on the little things: house-made flavored salts, table-side presentations, and polenta cakes shaped like little cows. Splurge on the tomahawk steak for two, or stick to one of the less intimidating selections among the fine steaks and chops on offer.
  11. Fogo de Chao Brazilian Steakhouse – 200 Dartmouth St. Boston – Fogo de Chao is a chain, sure, but it’s also a treat. Brazilian churrasco—brandy-marinated chicken, parmesan-crusted pork, multiple cuts of seasoned beef—is brought to the table on skewers and sliced right onto your plate. Sides like corn salad and caramelized bananas add to the experience.
