steakhouse recco for young b-day, please
Our young carnivore is entereing the world double digits, and we'd like to celebrate by taking him to a steakhouse of a slightly higher order than Frank's (not that Frank's is bad, but one only turns 10 once). Any reccos for not over-the-top formal but still fine steak joints in the Boston area? What's a couple of steps below the Oak Room, for example?

Flemings is my favorite out of all the chains. Otherwise, Grill 23.

I know that Smith and Wollensky gets a lot of flack on this board, but the steaks are pretty good. And the location would be a lot of fun for a 10 year old: it's in a fake castle/ ex-armoury with lots of historic flags etc. However, it's not that inexpensive...if that is an issue.
Grill23 is not suitable in my opinion -- the place is full of suits and it's very loud not in a good way.
Wouldn't one of the Brazilian churrascarias be a good choice? Midwest Grill or some sort?
