Many of us celebrate the holidays with turkey or ham. Others serve lasagna and finger foods.
If you are tired of souffles and casseroles, head to Boston Chops or Mooo…. for some of the best cuts of beef in the country!
Luxury publication, Robb Report recently released its list of the 25 Best Steakhouses in America Right Now, and you guessed it, these two Boston venues made the "cut"!
The list includes restaurants from cities around the country including Denver, Houston, Las Vegas, and Seattle.
Rather than rating each steakhouse, Robb Report simply lists their 25 favorites with a blurb about why each old school and new school spot deserves the distinction of "Best in America Right Now."
Boston Chops describes itself "as a casual, yet refined twist on the classic American steakhouse," with "impeccable service and top quality nose-to-tail dining combined in a modern, urban atmosphere."
With locations in the South End and Downtown Crossing, Boston Chops is known for award-winning wines and “rarely celebrated” meats such as roasted bone marrow, crispy oxtail, and chicken fried sweetbreads.
“There’s a respect for the meat here, also evidenced by its ‘top chops,’ 14 ounce-plus slabs like filet mignon that come out with the bone still in, bare, without sides,” writes Robb Report‘s Alyson Sheppard.
Mooo…. Restaurant in Beacon Hill also made the list as a whimsically-named "new school" steakhouse led by chef/owner Jamie Mammano.
Unlike most steakhouses, Mooo.... opens for breakfast with mouth-watering steak and egg in the form of a 24-ounce, bone-in Delmonico.
Robb Report recommends the beef wellington,a classic dish raised to a higher standard, and described as “a fat tenderloin topped with spinach, mushroom duxelle, and foie gras and wrapped in puff pastry,” by Sheppard.
Mooo.... also features exquisite local seafood dishes such as "Maine lobster mac-and-cheese, chilled New England littlenecks, and escargot cooked Burgundy-style in red wine."
