This Restaurant In Boston Is Located In The Most Unforgettable Setting
There’s a restaurant in Boston that’s housed in a castle – think turrets, crenellations, the whole shebang! Whether your castle daydreams center around a Harry Potter-style feast or a Medieval meal, you can live out your preferred scenario over a scrumptious dinner at Smith & Wollensky.
This converted armory is located in the heart of Boston at 101 Arlington Street.
Constructed in 1891, the building used to be the headquarters of Boston's First Corps of Cadets.
Four stories of granite may seem like overkill, but the goal was to demonstrate that this volunteer force was ready to keep civil peace.
Now, Smith & Wollensky occupies the old gunroom, social hall, and museum floor of this Romanesque Revival building.
There are a handful of Smith & Wollensky restaurants scattered across the country, but the setting for this Boston steakhouse truly sets it apart.
The unusual interior creates an appealing backdrop to your meal.
Smith & Wollensky offers a wide variety of specialty cocktails, along with higher-end wine by the glass.
If you just want to eat from the bar menu, consider the sliders. Options range from Buffalo fried oyster sliders to filet sliders enhanced by bacon jam and steak sauce mayo.
Ready to splurge? Then head to the main dining room, where oysters are a popular appetizer.
Steak is the obvious choice of entrée. Sourced from family farms, they're hand cut and aged in-house for 28 days.
Big appetite? Try the 44-ounce cowboy ribeye!
The coffee and cocoa-rubbed filet is another delicious choice.
Beyond steak, there are a couple of seafood choices and this wonderfully crunchy veal Milanese.
Round out your feast with a slab of chocolate cake, which is more than big enough to share!
