Boston has an abundance of incredible restaurants so picking 10 favorites was a challenging task. While Boston is well-known for its fantastically fresh seafood, I also discovered some outstanding steakhouses that deliver some of the finest cuts of beef in town. Here are my top picks for the city’s best world-class dining:


At Artisan Bistro at the Ritz-Carlton Boston Common, Chef Andrew Yeo focuses on seafood dishes churning out plates like Georges Bank cod, seared diver scallops and his signature grilled oysters.

The Café at Taj Boston just might be the best place in the city to go for a special occasion dinner. Executive Chef Michael Mandato has recently revamped the menus here to offer dishes like pan seared lemon sole with lobster risotto and English peas as well as Angus beef strip steak.

Celebrities and locals alike flock to the famed Bristol Lounge at the swanky Four Seasons Boston for the juicy Bristol burger topped with aged Vermont cheddar cheese.

You don’t have to go into the North End for a taste of Italy. Davio’s Northern Italian Steakhouse’s specialties include Philly cheese steak rolls, Kobe beef meatballs, Bolognese and bone-in ribeye.
