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 (as do the lawyers and brokers whooping it up over pricey wines and indulgent steaks). The wine program has won national awards, as have the perfectly prepared cuts of beef.
From a dainty Japanese Wagyu to a hearty Porterhouse, there are plenty of steakhouses in Boston offering dishes you can really sink your teeth into. Whether baked potatoes sit sidecar to your beef, or you embrace the surf-and-turf concept, these restaurants fit the bill. After filling up on your favorite cuts, end the night at one of the best cocktail bars in Boston or best wine bars in Boston. Want a little more casual dining, check out the best burgers in Boston.
