When in Bean town, be sure and check out some restaurant Boston
Boston has some great history, and after checking out the sights and sounds of places like Fenway Park, Boston Harbor, and other historic landmarks, there is also some terrific restaurant Boston to partake in.
A mainstay of the Beacon Hill area restaurant Boston is The Beacon Hill Bistro. When you arrive at this fine restaurant, your senses take in the beautiful furnishings of the raised mahogany paneling, mosaic tile flooring, etched glass, banquet seating, and a large fireplace all help create a bistro on Charles Street like none other. It’s decidedly American and International flavors during the day, but at night the accent turns to French. If you are attending the theater, symphony, or a film, then you will be able to dine until 11:00pm.
Another acclaimed restaurant Boston that also serves French cuisine is Mistral. This restaurant is located in the city’s stylish South End and features uncomplicated French Mediterranean cuisine. Reminiscent of the area of Provence in the south of France, the décor consists of hand picked French pottery, high ceilings and arched floor to ceiling windows. They also hold receptions in their private dining room, Le Salon du Mistral, which accommodates up to 60 people.
On the world famous North End of town, a restaurant Boston that’s sure to please is Al Dente, which lets you feast on a bounty of Italian specialties. They offer seafood, veal, chicken, pasta, and a large array of lavish Italian specialties. They also have a cool open kitchen concept that lets you in on how they prepare the dishes. The setting is cozy and casual.
It once a regular stop for Jay Leno, the Paramount is a restaurant Boston that’s sure to please the budget minded diner. Catering mostly to students and located in the Beacon Hill area, the clean and relaxed restaurant serves up fresh omelettes, apple cinnamon pancakes. During the daytime the offer juicy burgers, grilled shrimp, goat cheese salad, Korean style baby back ribs, lemony chicken picatta, and other lunchtime favorites.
The Palm is considered by many Bostonians to be one of the finest restaurant Boston. It’s well known for prime aged steaks, large portions, and huge Maine lobsters.
Located at the chic Westin Hotel in Tony Copley Square, it doesn’t carry over to the atmosphere. A boisterous young crowd flocks to the steakhouse regularly. A great view of the Westin waterfall can be seen from any seat. Boston celebrities like Larry Bird and Steven Tyler of Aerosmith decorate the walls with caricatures of them. Side orders should be shared between two people because the portions are huge! The Maine lobsters are available in three, four or five pound portions. Prime Rib or New York steak, you can’t go wrong with ordering it.
There are some of restaurant Boston best. You’ve got plenty of choices, plenty of good food, something for everyone.
