Emilio's Restaurant Review

: Amidst the hubbub of the BoDo District, Emilio's at The Grove Hotel is a tranquil spot that hosts a mostly traveling clientele. The muted tones of the high, recessed ceiling with white-opaque and brass chandeliers lend a touch of grandeur to the dining room that’s designed with clean Scandinavian lines; guests, meanwhile, settle into overstuffed, soft-leather booths. Executive chef Christopher Hain’s inspired menu might include organic roasted chicken breast with cheddar-polenta fries and chorizo pan gravy, Angus tenderloin in a spicy Cognac-mustard sauce, and tangy hoisin-seasoned barbecued Kurobuta pork shanks paired with coconut bamboo rice and Asian pear slaw. But don’t bypass the daily specials --- you’d be lucky to encounter pesto-garlic sea scallops in a burgundy reduction sauce, accented with a black pepper and feta pilaf. Enhance your meal with a selection from the substantial wine list. Emilio's also offers dinnertime sushi Tuesday through Friday. The property extends a lovely welcome with live piano music from Randy Coryell.
