  • Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill
    Yes, you can hear the cheers of Red Sox fan's during a home game at Jerry Remy's Sports Bar & Grill at Fenway. And the park's right field wall is easily viewed from a spacious rooftop deck. But the interior is what really reminds you that you're dining at the brainchild of the Sox's beloved announcer and former second baseman. Katharine Q. Seelye of The New York Times said in a 2010 article, "The most striking feature inside the restaurant is the view—on television. Two outsize high-definition televisions, measuring 11 feet long and costing $225,000 each, hang above the bar." The "screen monsters" make you wonder if you've stumbled onto the floor of the New York Stock Exchange or a spaceship control-deck manned by extraterrestrial sports fans. If you can't find a seat near the bar, there are 30 60-inch high-def televisions scattered throughout the pub. Jerry Remy's generously portioned menu has caught as much attention as its collection of huge TVs. Robert Nadeau of the Boston Phoenix said, "Most of the scoring on this menu comes out of a Texas-style barbecue smoker," citing the authentic taste of the beef brisket and the juiciness of the smoked half-chicken. Bella English of the Boston Globe agreed that the large smoker located in the parking lot makes “succulent brisket, ribs, and chicken,” and reported that the huge desserts "must be seen to be believed."

  • Ceres Bistro
    Drawing its name from the Roman goddess of the harvest, Ceres Bistro incorporates seasonal and locally sourced ingredients into its menu of contemporary, casual fine-dining cuisine. These local ingredients complement the slightly elevated versions of American staples—including brined pork chops and grits with aged cheddar—but the chefs also add international flair by introducing distinctive flavors such as wasabi oil or imported spaghetti. To help accommodate specialized diets, the chefs even prepare gluten-free menus and entire entrees without carbon. The wine list embraces a similar worldliness, featuring aromatic whites and robust reds from Europe, South America, and Australia, as well as a selection of domestic producers. Echoing this commitment to tradition as well as modernity, the bistro uses antique accents to add character to its contemporary smattering of dark wooden tables and floor-to-ceiling windows. Reclaimed oak wainscoting lines the executive boardroom, original Vanity Fair prints from the 1800s adorn the bar-and-lounge-area's walls, and the 90-seat dining room lies beneath a stained-glass ceiling dome that dates back more than 100 years. "We go to auctions, and we always walk away with enormous pieces. We’re not into collecting teacups,” co-owner Janet Birbara told Westchester Living in 2010.

    Winner of more than 400 awards for its barbecue, Famous Dave’s caters to carnivores with a menu of hearty, flavorful American fare. Kick off the mouthcapades with a starter of sweetwater catfish fingers ($7.99), which pair the whiskered swimmer's cornmeal-crusted phalanges with rémoulade and jalapeño sauce, or begin by using onion strings ($6.99) to weave yourself a lightly breaded palate poncho. A 12-boned slab of St. Louis-style spareribs ($22.99), pit-smoked for three to four hours over a hickory inferno, gives sauce-slathered fingers the chance to enjoy an endless string of napkin hugs, while a Texas beef brisket sandwich ($8.49) provides a bread buffer for the benefit of tidy tasters. A sugary slate of desserts, including Dave's famous bread pudding ($5.99) with pecan praline sauce and vanilla-bean ice cream, give sweets-loving stomachs something to blog about to their gastro-friends.

  • Midwest Grill Boston
    “Basta, basta!” The words may as well be a mantra at Midwest Grill. The term, meaning “enough” in Portuguese, is the perfect finish to the churrascaria’s all-you-can-eat cavalcade of grilled meats and hearty seafood dishes. Passadores—the Brazilian word for waiters—rotate around tables, slicing fresh-grilled skewers of beef sirloin, Brazilian-style ribs, and succulent lamb and pork loin on to plates at the feaster’s demand. This dining style is known as rodízio, and it doesn't just apply to churrasco meats; patrons can also opt for seafood options, such as Brazilian fish stew and sautéed shrimp, or engage a server in a duel with a carving fork. The all-you-can-eat meal is served at a fixed price at both lunch and dinner, and includes unlimited helpings from the salad bar and hot-food buffet. Each of Midwest Grill's locations also houses a TV-lined bar, where mixologists concoct cocktails and pop open bottles of Brazilian beer and wine.
