Radius Bar & Restaurant Review


* Formal* Excellent Service* Excellent Food & Wine
* Pricey* Valet* After-Work Hot Spot

My Opinions: This is one of my choice bars to enjoy an after work drink at! During the week, from 5-7pm, you'd think it was Saturday night - the places fills as quickly as it empties though, so plan to get there around 5 for optimal mingling.

I was able to snag a lounge table and enjoy some great dishes ... the burger is amazing (with multiple food awards to backup my opinion), but the oysters on the half shell and cheeses were not my favorite. I was pleased that the service in the lounge was just as good as in their dining room. And, I enjoyed their mixed drinks tonight (strong & fresh ingredients) just as much as I enjoy their impressive wine/bubblies list.

Radius remains to be a Boston-Classic in the Financial District, and one of my favorite restaurants around. The service is impeccable complimented by excellent food quality and elegant flavors. An added plus is the sexy rotund room layout, simple/clean decor, and private room option downstairs.

I'm a big fan of Via Matta and Altastrada (MGM Grand location) as well, members of Michael Schlow's restaurants, so try them all!
