2024 Best Neighborhood Restaurant, Downtown

Boston Chops

Thanks to a few hip newcomers, scrappy Downtown Crossing is having a moment. If you ask us, that’s even more reason to celebrate this luxe steakhouse, which remains a neighborhood favorite after six years. The restaurant is where businessfolk with expense accounts can summon Japanese Wagyu and trophy bottles of Burgundy while the rest of us enjoy modestly priced prime steak frites, melt-in-your-mouth popovers, and excellent cocktails.
