Lunch at Locke Ober
I have a long standing annual holiday lunch with some coworkers here and we went today. Other than our group getting smaller, nothing has changed.
They got rid of the $18.75 lunch special last week which was posted about here.and brought back their regular lunch menu. It was a great deal but I didn't find too much I wanted to eat.
I had the lobster bisque and the wienerschnitzel; a thin, breaded veal cutlet..perfectly cooked and topped with an egg, capers and anchovies..Holstein style? note for anyone seeking German food. DC next to me had oysters on 1/2 shell and also the wienerschnitzel. Normally I avoid ordering the same dish as my DC; but this just isn't a CH style sharing crowd..:)
Highly recommended for anyone seeking a classic Boston lunch in a classic room..side note..not too busy when we got there at 12:30 but full by 1:15. Crowd was slightly less than 50% Suit/jacket tie..so don't feel you need a jacket. I wore a sweater and slacks and was not at all out of place. I don't normally drink hi test at lunch but probably 1/2 the tables were. A fun trip back in time.
