On entering BOKX 109 American Prime guests may forget they're in Newton - the clean-lined dining room with its leather banquettes and elegant wood paneling feels too urbane to be suburban.

But BOKX 109 is where it's at with cool music, an open kitchen (complete with an eight seat chef's table), three private dining rooms and poolside outdoor dining during the warmer months. The modern American style cuisine paired with one of the most extensive wine lists in the area creates an experience that is "predictably sensational" every time. BOKX 109 American Prime is a performance in dining.
