Lobster and then some: The Langham’s decade-old surf ‘n’ turf resto, the Bostonian, has gotten a complete makeover and an entirely new menu.
Look & Feel: The basement space has rid its classic steakhouse look for a modern setting (read: contemporary art on the walls, faux brick walls, warm copper tones). There are three separate sections: the main dining space, a bar specializing in craft beers, and a private function room.
On the Menu: The name might still be Bostonian, but the menu has become much less rigid, with internationally influenced dishes like Hokkaido sea urchin topped with seaweed and salmon roe; or beetroot-cured salmon. But loyal patrons need not fear: there are still remnants of the old signatures, including lobster Thermidor, USDA Prime steaks and crab cakes.
Great For: Family feasts, all-out dinners.
FYI: The new Bostonian took two whole months to revamp.
