2015 Winner: Grill 23 & Bar


There aren’t many ways to transcend the cliches of the luxury steakhouse, but this clubby, handsome, locally owned Back Bay institution does so with a better class of boutique prime beef, dry-aged sirloins and rib-eyes, and unstuffy-yet-polished service. Seek the quieter upstairs room and enjoy the extravagant wine list and birdbath-sized Mad Men-vintage cocktails. Hint for non-one percenters: The prime skirt steak-frites is a steal at $29.
