Best Steak Tartare in Boston area?

JWR Aug 18, 2008 01:16 PM

Now that I can no longer order the steak tartare at 9 Park any thoughts of other places in the Boston area that offer an exceptional tartare? I enjoy the ESK version (in fact I have enjoyed it twice over the last week) and I also like the Butcher shop version (although I don't think it is as good as the 9 Park Cafe version). Any others that are recommended?

    I have sat at the bar and had a very good Tartare from Locke-Ober.

      Brasserie Jo has a pretty good version.

          Brasserie Jo probably has my favorite traditional version. The kitfo at Addis Red Sea is also lovely. I thought No. 9's was overseasoned, and Gaslight's version is just awful.

            My favorite two come from the steak houses, and it is pretty close: 1) Capital Grille; and 2) Abe and Louie's. While neither has the traditional egg presentation - mixed in table side or there for your combining, both taste extremely fresh, come with excellently prepped condiments and have wonderful flavor. My slight lean is toward CG.
