In the early 80’s, I began developing Copley Place here in Boston with several partners from Chicago. We often found ourselves looking for a classic steakhouse—a place with food of the highest quality and superior service. Nothing like that existed at the time and we figured we couldn’t be the only people looking for that special dining experience. We opened a space in the old Salada Tea Building with the goal of making it one of the best restaurants in the city. Over the years we’ve made some changes—we only source premium natural meat, added a second floor with private dining rooms, and in March 2014 debuted our new bar. One thing remains the same: our gratitude to our fantastic chefs, dedicated staff, innovative purveyors, and especially our loyal customers.
