Hungry? Try The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common’s Artisan Bistro, which serves breakfast, lunch, brunch and dinner. The 76-seat eatery offers modern décor, rich woods and leather seating, and delivers a dinner menu of fresh seafood, flatbreads, steaks and burgers. If you’re craving a drink rather than a full meal, cozy up to the bar and peruse Artisan Bistro’s signature bloody mary menu and list of microbrews. If you’re in a hurry at lunchtime, select a soup or salad and an entrée from Artisan Bistro’s special “Power-through” $20 prix-fixe menu.
For drinks, head to The Ritz-Carlton, Boston Common’s Avery Bar, located just off the hotel’s lobby. You’ll love the sleek, 1950s, mid-century modern style and the inviting fireplace. Bartenders mix up 10 different types of martinis — dry, dirty, sour, sweet and Russian are among the group. Or, order a 1950s-inspired classic cocktail that’ll make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time.
For a third dining option, venture over to Blu Restaurant, located in the SportsClub/LA connected to the hotel. Blu offers breakfast, lunch and dinner items, as well as a casual/take-out area. We recommend making reservations if you plan to dine for dinner.
