Restaurants in Boston are quite abundant but restaurants that make it to the Top 10 list are quite few. Abe and Louie’s is trying to make it on that list.

When we arrived one evening, our server quickly greeted us and offered us a glass of wine from an extensive wine list, which included ports, chardonnay and vintage merlots.

We started our dinner out perfectly by ordering some of the fresh appetizers. The jumbo shrimp cocktail ($12.95) were fresh and tender. The soup du jour was vegetable beef barley but we opted for the New England clam chowder ($5.95) which was creamy and loaded with chunks of potatoes and clams.

The Abe and Louie’s salad ($6.50), a combination of bibb lettuce, apples, pistachio nuts, blue cheese and Dijon vinaigrette sounded intriguing but we opted to share the beef steak tomato with blue cheese and vidalia onions ($7.95).
The vegetables, potatoes and sides are just as large as the menu and should be shared between two guests.

The sautéed spinach with garlic and mushrooms ($6.95) was not soggy but fresh and crispy. Don’t miss out on the mashed potatoes with blue cheese ($5) - it is out of this world!

I ordered the bone-in filet mignon, the signature steak ($25.95). Our server suggested I order the cut with the bone because it adds more flavor. While I agree the steak was very flavorful, it was also somewhat tough.

My dining companion ordered the bone-in double cut prime rib ($29.95), again, at our server’s recommendation but he said the cut was just as tender and juicy off the bone as it was on.

The extra thick veal chop ($26.95) looked delicious and so did the domestic lamb chops ($28.95).

The New York cheesecake ($6) should not be missed. Desserts here were wonderful! Choose among fresh baked apple pie with ice cream or melted cheddar cheese ($6), a chocolate soufflé with raspberry sauce ($7) and the house mocha crème brulee ($7).

This restaurant just recently opened up after undergoing a major renovation from its previous notoriety as J.C. Hillary’s. Today, Abe and Louie’s is a fun place to go for good food and service.
