Downtime in Boston?

I will be in Boston for a couple days next week, and thought it would be a good excuse to do some legwork on the Modern Gentleman’s Guide to Boston. While I plan to use the interwebs to find some of the places I’ll visit, I figured it would be even better to go directly to those that share many of my preferences: you, our loyal blog reader. 

Any thoughts on the best steak house in Boston (no chains please)? Best martini? Barbershop? Wine shop? Spot for a business lunch?

Wingtip Founder & CEO, Ami Arad is the quintessential modern gentleman. He has distinctive taste, an eclectic style, and dresses for every occasion. Ami developed his vision for Wingtip at a young age; even back in high school where four years of speech and debate meant weekends wearing a coat and tie, he was in his element. Years of working in upscale men’s clothing stores and socializing in cigar shops, coupled with his entrepreneurial spirit, inspired Ami to develop Wingtip, a men’s specialty store and private social club.

  • Well for best Martini I’d say it’s a toss up between “The Oak Room” which is located in the Copley Plaza on St. James Ave near copley or “Eastern Standard” in Kenmore square.
    Oak room’s martini is a little more about show, served in stemless glasses that come in a small bucket of ice. They also have live jazz on saturday nights there and a good collection of single malts.
    Eastern Standard makes well crafted drinks and the martini is no exception.
    Also make sure to visit Leavitt and Pierce in Harvard square. They’re a great tabacco and gentleman’s store.
