Stanhope Grille, Back Bay. Anyone tried?
My husband and I are enjoying a romantic weekend at the Back Bay Hotel. Stanhope Grille receives good reviews on Open Table, but I haven't heard anything from our local Hounds. Anyone been to this place?
It was fine, hotellish food the one time we went, maybe 3 years ago.
IMO there are many better options within walking distance
Bistro du Midi
I am there often, as I work across the street. I will say, I think they have a very good breakfast/brunch. As for lunch, its fairly standard food...nothing that will make you stay in the hotel. You also have Grill 23 10 steps away and Post 390 20 yards away. Both of those might be much better dinner options (Grill 23, leaps and bounds ahead of Post)
I will also add...I really like having drinks here...it's a nice setting with a fire place etc...
I had a feeling. Thanks for all the great input! I think we will try Bistro du Midi for dinner as we've never been before and are looking to try something new to us, and perhaps enjoy a cocktail by the fireplace at the hotel.
