Silvertone Bar & Grill Restaurant Review

: Owner Josh Childs was considered a pioneer when he opened his casual Downtown Crossing bar-restaurant in the late nineties. And his winning formula --- solid bartending, good comfort food at modest prices, and an attractively priced wine list, not to mention drinks like the Happy Meal --- draws a steady stream of post-work revelers from the nearby Financial District and government buildings, pre-show concertgoers headed for the nearby Orpheum Theatre, and late-night collegians and hipsters. The space is dimly-lit, clean and minimalist (light wood, slate accents, concrete floors), the vibe convivial and usually loud, especially at night. Silvertone’s menu is noteworthy for its good simple salads and little touches like barely-wilted greens on the side and topnotch fries, not always found in bar settings. Standout dishes include a bistro-style half chicken, mac ‘n’ cheese with honey chile chicken, juicy steak tips and even jerk chicken with fried bananas. Savvy wine lovers like the place for its bottle pricing, not the three-times-retail markup of most Boston restaurants, but a mere $10 over retail, yielding some bargains with many priced under $30. Dessert is not offered.
