Renowned chef Barbara Lynch, also the owner of Boston’s B&G Oysters and No. 9 Park, draws on her on own memories of traveling in France and Italy to create an innovative dining experience at this Shawmut eatery. Part wine bar, part restaurant and part shop, the unusual space is outfitted with a few high tables, counter seating, a large central butcher’s block, and glass cases lined with fresh meats. Surrounded by exposed brick and enormous windows, diners savor carefully selected wines paired with signatures from the seasonal menu, which may include steak tartare and the house specialty hot dog.

From the From the May 2008 Food & Wine Go List
At this clever steak house/butcher/deli, diners choose a cut of meat (beef, pork, chicken, game birds), tell the waitstaff how they would like it cooked and then wait for it to come out of the kitchen. Alternatively, there’s also a menu, plus daily blackboard specials, such as grilled leg of rabbit. The wine list is especially strong on Bordeaux and Burgundies.
