At Yamato Hibachi and Sushi, diners can sample dishes from both sides of the temperature spectrum. Hot Japanese steakhouse dishes of strip steak and grilled salmon are served alongside cool sushi and sashimi meals. At fiery hibachi grills, chefs blend well-honed showmanship with culinary skill, whipping up feasts of lobster tail, filet mignon, salmon, and chicken before patrons's eyes. Beyond the grill, the menu features hearty meals of pork katsu and noodle-filled udon soups, as well as tempura-stuffed specialty maki and delicate nigiri made with freshly caught fish, octopus, and surf clam. The staff are also happy to celebrate birthdays and special occasions with singing and clapping.

With today's Groupon, $35 gets you $75 worth of soup, salad, meat, fish, and drinks at the Oak Room, located inside Back Bay's Fairmont Copley Plaza Hotel. This elegant eatery has won numerous honors from Boston Magazine, including Best Steakhouse Restaurant in 2003. Your Groupon is good for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and brunch, but cannot be used on Christmas Day, New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day Eve, Valentine's Day, or in doppelganger dimensions where Picasso was an art thief and the sun wears cool shades.
It might be the six-week aging process that helps Abe & Louie’s continually nab a place on Boston magazine’s Best of Boston list. Then again, it might be the bone-in filet mignon. The house also does seafood remarkably well, so don’t hesitate to order specialties such as the lump crab cakes and swordfish chop.
Situated on the city’s outskirts, this 40-year-old slice of Americana features a 200-seat dining room with rustic wooden tables and throwback red booths. Cold oysters and other specialties from the raw bar supplement the Stockyard Classics, which include aged prime rib and a juicy bone-in filet.
Chefs at The Capital Grille hand-cut and dry-age every one of their steaks in house. After resting in a temperature-controlled fortress for up to 21 days, the unbelievably tender beef hits the infrared broiler, where it’s sealed with a crisp, charred crust.
