What an honor to see Gibbet Hill Grill and The Bancroft named on Thrillist’s Best Steakhouses in Boston list!
Here’s what Thrillist has to say about each location, and why it made it on the list:
GIBBET HILL GRILL:
“OK, so, the Angus cows you’ll encounter roaming around this Groton restaurant aren’t actually dinner, but Gibbet Hill Grill’s farm setting underscores the freshness of the menu. Most of the restaurant’s produce is sourced from the farm itself—and it’s one of the only restaurants in New England that has a produce farm on site. Located inside a revamped barn, the restaurant is down-homey in its aesthetic, but the menu itself is surprisingly sophisticated, yet relatively affordable. Steak cuts include a bone-in rib-eye and a 48-ounce porter, and all come with two farm-fresh sides. Don’t bypass the cocktail program, which also incorporates a lot of the farm’s seasonal output.”
“How is it that one of the area’s most exciting steakhouses opened all the way out in Burlington? Whatever the why and how, the cavernous suburban restaurant has since cemented its reputation as a modern steakhouse that’s worth the drive. The delight is in the details: house–made flavored salts that season the cuts; a tomahawk steak presented tableside, then brought back to the kitchen for carving; polenta cakes shaped like little cows that accompany each steak. Bancroft’s modern iron and glass decor is a refreshing detour from the standard dark wood and brass, and both the cocktail and wine programs demand you designate someone else to drive home.”
