Since opening its doors in 1983, Grill 23 & Bar has been New England's premier steak and seafood grill, renowned for its prime, all-natural, dry-aged beef exclusively from Brandt Beef, as well as its fresh, creative seafood presentations. The Back Bay restaurant has become a landmark dining spot with a dynamic menu full of classic favorites and creatively composed dishes, each reflecting the best ingredients of the region. The award-winning wine list has achieved the Wine Spectator's Best of - Award of Excellence annually since 2002 as well as many other accolades.

The 5,000-square-foot dining room preserves the original sculptured ceiling, mahogany paneling, massive, Corinthian columns and hardwood and marble floors of the historic Salada Tea Building. Unlike many steakhouses, this one is primarily warm and light with an open kitchen that allows diners front row seats for all the creative culinary action.
