Best of Boston

2008 Best Steakhouse

Grill 23

The better story would have been that finally, in this, the year of the cow, one among the city’s numerous new upscale meateries had managed to dethrone our 14-time of Boston stalwart. Nothing doing. Mooo inherited the Federalist’s matchless wine list. KO Prime has the offal around. But for a prime, dry-aged rib-eye with a power client (downstairs) or a significant other (the more intimate upstairs), Grill 23 still rules the herd.
