Where would we be without food? On a planet dominated by merciless banana overlords, that's where. 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.
Grill 23’s turn-of-the-century sculpted ceilings and mahogany paneling complement the timeless cuisine that Chef Jay Murray crafts from sustainably sourced ingredients. He transforms all-natural, humanely raised beef from Brandt Farms in California into seared tenderloins, brown-sugar bacon meatloaf, and rib eyes aged for 100 days.
Head to the basement wine room at Mooo…. and you’ll find bottles that date all the way back to 1907. No need to pony up the $14,000, though; the extensive wine list offers plenty of affordable options that also complement the New York sirloins and Japanese wagyu beef.
