Whether you’re in town for business or for pleasure, in Boston you can still visit some of the most exciting dining establishments on the East Coast. Boston has a reputation for craft beers and pub food, but the city also offers both high end and artisanal food experiences. Here are our picks for the can’t miss restaurants in Boston: Best dive bar: Bukowski Tavern offers casual American food alongside the atmosphere of every one of your best late night memories. This is a 21 and older only establishment, so be prepared for explicit language and good-natured raucous behavior, particularly after midnight when the food prices are reduced. Best brewery offering food: Enjoying potent potables is a great way to spend an evening, particularly when served alongside a first class meal. The Five Horses Tavern is a perennial favorite for the extensive draft and bottled beer options as well as brunch through late night meal options for carnivores, vegetarians, vegans, and gluten-free eaters. Best fresh seafood: Boston is a port city and has access to all the freshest caught seafood available, so make sure to take advantage by visiting Neptune Oyster for clams, crabs, tuna, oysters, and more. Locals tell us there are usually long waits, so plan to call ahead to get on the list. Best brunch: Man, woman, and child do not survive on dinner alone. The Neighborhood Restaurant and Bakery has been a staple for family breakfast and brunch in Boston for over 30 years. For a more upscale brunch option, the Eastern Standard’s weekend brunch is unmissable. Best chef’s table: Dining at a chef’s table is both luxurious and demanding. The items served to you are cutting edge and unique, but you may have a limited ability to make special requests for alterations. The chef’s table at Menton is an event unto itself, but reservations are required well in advance. The menu is available with or without suggested wine pairings. Best steakhouse: In addition to being known for its seafood and bars, Boston also has a reputation for exceptional steaks, and the best steakhouse in the city is The Capital Grille. With three locations in Massachusetts, as well as others throughout the country, Capital Grille does not feel like a chain, but like a true classic steakhouse. Most of us don’t travel simply with the goal of eating new and delicious foods. We have work to complete, goals to achieve, or family to see. Maybe you’re in town for a bit longer, in a luxurious temporary rental from Churchill Living. Nevertheless, if you’re in Boston, accept our friendly suggestions and check these places out before you leave.
