The Met Bar & Grill is an offspring of the “modern” steakhouse which serves world class meat with an innovative approach. This stylish restaurant serves classic American fare with a touch of sophistication and comfort. The menu boasts something for every appetite. Try the traditional steakhouse options which are sure to please the carnivore in you or select from the Met Creations for more inventive dishes. A main feature of the Met Bar & Grill is the Met Burger Bar where the American Iconic Classic is served. Enjoy your burger simple and traditional or custom design it with a selection of fine meats, artisanal cheeses, fresh baked buns and choices of 48 toppings from around the world. Be transported across the globe on a “burger Journey”.

"The Met has an interesting brunch menu along with a unique array of your own self designed Bloody Mary combinations. They as well are very sensitive to catering to the needs of food allergies which we find very helpful in choosing where our party can eat.
It was a rather slow Sunday afternoon at the Met with all of the demand for the outdoor dining on the patio and a congregation near the windows by the bar area; as such, the dining area was somewhat sparse; however, a rarity for this place and we kind of enjoyed the quiet surroundings. Always worthy of a visit.

What does creative casual cuisine mean?<br />Exactly what it says. We’re creative, because we reject the same-old-same-old in favor of tastes that are interesting and unique. We’re casual because while our food may be worth getting dressed up for, we invite you to come as you are. We’re all about cuisine in the sense that our chefs apply high standards of culinary art.<br />There it is. Creative. Casual. Cuisine. If it sounds like your kind of place, then you – like us- are not your average Joe.

"Time and time again I go to this location and they haven't failed me yet. They are very accomodating to your tastes and their menu has their old stand by's and adds seasonal gems to give you a chance at breaking away and trying something new without having to go someplace else. Bar, beer and wine offerings as well follow suit.
Good food at a fair price; you can take your spouse and bring your kids along without breaking the bank.
All and all a good choice.

Centrally located in the heart of Chestnut Hill just 15 minutes from The Shops at The Prudential Center & The Burlington Mall, Del Frisco’s Grille is on Boston’s famous Boylston St. just past Hammond St which is only minutes from the Chestnut Hill T Stop. Over looking Hammond Pond at the Chestnut Hill Shopping Center which has been transformed into the newly renamed The Street, our location is easy to get to from both the City and locations further north!<br /><br />The Grille offers Hand-Cut Steaks, Fresh Seafood, Fire Roasted Flatbreads, Tempting Shareable items and so much more. We offer a wine list that includes over 500 bottle selections with a pairing for every palate. Join us for an unforgettable meal and our signature hospitality.

"I like to save my steak orders for places that will deliver what you ask for; Del Friscos meets the bill. A good cut of meat served to perfection; a nice glass of Cabernet and good company. Give it a try; you won't be dissapointed."

"Wanting to pick a new spot for Easter Sunday Brunch; we chose Del Frisco's Chestnut HIll Grille. The food was well prepared; albeit a little dissapointed that there were no omellette selections. However, what we did have was delicious given the clean plates all around. We enjoyed our time there and the service was excellent. The savory smells from the kitchen were as well a delight.
The next try here will be for lunch; it could hit the trifecta :))

"I was frankly surprised having remembered this spot as an Applebees for many years. The menu is a bit limited, but you will have some enticing choices. Don't miss out on the clam chowder; I was pleasantly surprised on how it was made and presented; a bit heavy on the cream, however, the taste is worth the try.
All in all a good expericned worthy of a return visit. I could imagine a group of friends sitting and enjoying themselves there for a few hours after work or on a weekend; Plenty of couples as well. The bar was well attended; travelers statying at the hotel and co-workers from what I could venture to guess. Given the location at the hotel; I woudl guess that is what generates a good portion of the crowd.

Bricco’s star has been rising steadily since restaurateur Frank DePasquale revamped the menu to feature modern interpretations of regional Italian dishes. <br><br> Bricco has garnished superlative reviews from food writers in Boston and around the country – Best Guaranteed Meal in the North End and Best Pasta in Boston just two of the most recent accolades. <br><br> The talented kitchen team creates “boutique” Italian food, so-called because it is unique, personal and created for a select and sophisticated diner. The food is complemented by an enoteca (wine bar) with an exceptional selection of all-Italian wines. <br><br> Bricco also offers a sophisticated late night scene. The chic and energetic bar serves up great one of a kind cocktails as well as brick oven pizza with gourmet toppings such as prosciutto and fresh mozzarella from Italy in addition with a full dinner menu. <br>Open 7 days a week 11:oopm – 2:00 a.m.

"Well my daughter and I stopped in for Apps and some Wine prior to heading over to Logan Airport to pick up my wife. The Polenta and Caprese were excellent to say the least. The service was on par with dining at the Ritz. This place is well located on Hanover Street in the North End and steps away from Modern Pastry for those with a sweet tooth.
I will definitely be back to try some of the main courses; if not for the airport run; we would have definitinely stayed for more.
Mangia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
