2005 Best Power Lunch


We’ve long lamented the disappearance of the three-martini lunch. But if such a luxury were still to exist, it would go down at Davio’s. Since relocating to its current perch in Park Square, Steve DiFillippo’s institution of Italian dining has reclaimed a position of power. Well-heeled Back Bay business types shuffle in each afternoon, scarfing down generous portions of pasta with glasses of house-filtered water, on the rocks.
