JM Curley consistently shows up on various lists of Boston's best bars, but did you know there is also a secret 20-seat steakhouse hiding in the back?
A burgundy curtain and a large sign marked, "Adults Only," separates Bogie's Place from JM Curley. It's kind of a "Steakhouse Speakeasy" if you will.
Named for the great Humphrey Bogart, Bogie's Place is reminiscent of old Hollywood simplicity: Great food. Great drinks. No nonsense.
Meals are served a la carte with a wedge salad or appetizer choices like caviar, charcuterie & cheese, or mussels with white wine to start.
Hand-carved steaks can be adorned with decadent bone marrow and foie gras butter.
Select a grass-fed filet, NY strip, 28 oz. Porterhouse, or a 45-day dry-aged bone-in Tomahawk steak.
Sorry vegetarians, Bogie's idea of light fare is half a chicken or a rack of lamb!
After your Chef's Choice dessert, stay for a superior cocktail before rejoining the masses at JM Curley.
They offer a handful of beers, several wine options, and top-shelf liquors expertly mixed into modernized versions of classic cocktails.
Try the Shakespeare-inspired, Pour Yorick (smoked old fasioned), made with Rittenhouse 100 proof Rye, Angostura Bitters, Turbinado Cane Sugar, Bourbon Soaked Cherry Wood Chips, Flamed Orange Zest. It's poured from a smoking skull!
If you've come to party, order up the Absinthe Fountain It's served table-side for up to six guests.
Family-friendly restaurants have their place in Boston culture, but every now and then grown-ups need to be grown-ups in a kid-free indulgent environment. Bogie's Place definitely scratches that itch!
