I know there are posts to search ... but has anyone had a recent great find/experience within Boston for Steak? A few guys are meeting this weekend to grab a cut of meat and a scotch - avoiding Del Frisco's etc... but wouldn't mind trying a CH recommendation.
If by 'etc...' you mean the large national chain steak houses, your best option is going to be Grill 23 (not a chain). There are other non steakhouse places which serve good steak dishes (several previous threads as you mentioned), but not a lot that fit the scotch, beef, men's dinner atmosphere. Maybe Prezza in the north end?
My favorite steak experience in the Boston area (considering price and ambiance) is the steak frites at Central Kitchen in Central Square. Not sure what they whiskey selection is, but the steak is fine.
Grill 23, Abe & Louis & Moo are all excellent options for steak. The "chains", such as Capital Grille and Ruth's Chris, aren't as good as the 3 I mentioned, but are perfectly acceptable. There is such CH snobism when it comes to steakhouse discussion; it's not as if we're talking Applebee's, after all.
Hard to beat Grill 23 & Bar. They also have an excellent wine cellar, and very good bar service.
