Best of Boston

2015 Best New Restaurant

The Bancroft

At this shiny new steakhouse in Burlington’s 3rd Ave development, presentation is paramount—and often over the top. (For proof, look no further than the 3,000-plus-bottle wine collection, displayed on a catwalk above a glass-paneled dining room.) James Beard-nominated chef Mario Capone’s food is equally dramatic: Steaks come with flags labeling their doneness; a “fork-and-knife cauliflower roast” is served with a knife through the middle; and house-made and individually bottled cocktails are poured tableside.
