There are certain things that Boston is notorious for. The Sox, for example. The television show Cheers. An accent that lacks the ability to pronounce r’s. But if Boston is famous for any restaurant, it has to be Top of the Hub. Located on the highest level of the Prudential Center, the very Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator-esque elevator whisks guests up to this elegant restaurant that boasts the best view of Boston, hands down. However, people are often hesitant to visit the Hub because of the hefty price tag. Well, if there’s one thing we know how to do, it’s find a bargain. If you can’t afford the all out, multiple course meal, we suggest visiting simply for dessert. A last minute phone reservation has always found us a spot at Top of the Hub for late night desserts of Creme Brulee with fresh berries and Chantilly cream, or the array of freshly baked cookies with berries and cream (which is so elaborate that the kitchen needs 10-15 minutes notification to prepare it!) If your sweet tooth isn’t too interested, maybe your thirst will conquer. Top of the Hub features a jazz lounge with premier acts every night of the week. You won’t find your bartender to be a sloppy college kid straight from the Applebee’s bar, either. The Hub’s bartenders are true connoisseurs of the cocktail. So no matter what you do, make sure to find your way to the Top. It’s not so lonely after all.
