THIS RESTAURANT CLOSED OCTOBER 2012
Officially founded in 1875, Locke-Ober remains a hub for Boston's most powerful movers and shakers to deal and dine. James Beard award-winning chef Lydia Shire purchased the restaurant in 2001 to restore the dining rooms and update the menu, working to maintain the restaurant's legacy while infusing it with her own modern style. The menu retains some of the old standards, such as lobster bisque and baked Alaska, while at the same time opening the door to more inventive dishes, such as barbecued bluefish with toasted corn arepas.
Full bar. Serving dinner Mon-Sat. Closed Sun.
"This is old-school Brahmin dining at its stateliest. Generations have basked in the glow of mahogany, crystal and silver while dining grandly on oysters and lobster stew (JFK's favorite), Dover sole and steak au poivre."
