Locke-Ober (CLOSED)

Restaurants Downtown

Some things never change. All carved mahogany and polished silver, stained glass and tinkling crystal, the dining room here looks much as it did when it opened 130-plus years ago (a day you'd be forgiven for imagining some of the starched, bow tie-clad waiters must recall first-hand). Other things change for the better. Under co-owner Lydia Shire's watchful eye, the kitchen has ushered the menu into the 21st century: curry, wasabi, guanciale and ancho chilies find their place among the escargots, filet mignon, calf's liver and dover sole (although a few classics, including JFK's lobster stew, brook no alteration).
