Few things say luxury quite like the Four Seasons Hotel. Overlooking Boston's Public Garden, visitors to the Four Seasons have the lavishness and extravagance of Boston's finest stores and restaurants at their fingertips. Sargent, concierge at the Four Seasons Boston Hotel, recommends the following Boston restaurants:
1) Scollay Square, 21 Beacon Street, Boston
"This is a great dining option in the city. It is a casual but delicious. The decor pays homage to an old lost neighborhood of Boston. The images of famed dancers are reflected into the fantastic architectural mirrors above the bar the open kitchen adds excitement to the room. My favorite entree is the pan seared scallops, which are served with a crab and risotto cake and spinach. Be sure to check out the lobster macaroni and cheese - every mouthful is delicious."
2. Skipjacks, 199 Clarendon Street, Boston
"A fantastic Asian influenced fish house with a casual nautical atmosphere. The blue and turquoise colored glass dividers and mosaic tile work give it that waterside feel. The Wasabi Crusted salmon is wonderful and my favorite - the ginger soy glazed and oven steamed sea bass - is amazing. Sushi is available too. The kids will love their Kids Menu item's in 3D. The Sunday Brunch with live jazz is fun and easy with a good mix of breakfast and seafood entrees."
3. Davio's, 75 Arlington Street, Boston
"An Italian favorite for wonderful northern style paired with great steaks and chops. The welcoming lounge and chef's table are two features worth mentioning. The lounge has comfortable sofas and chairs and a living room type atmosphere. The Chef's Table is great for a single diner or diners with an interest in the culinary arts as this table is just in front of their kitchen and their many talented chefs create their dishes just in front of you. Favorites at Davio's are the crispy chicken livers appetizer, the butternut squash ravioli and hand rolled potato gnocchi."
