Top of the Hub Restaurant Review: Perched on the 52nd floor of the Prudential Center, Top of the Hub features floor-to-ceiling, two-story windows with 360-degree views of the city, from Cambridge to Southie. It's a special occasion spot for locals, and the prices reflect this. (Go easy on your pocketbook with the $25 three-course lunch served on weekdays.) A creative lunch take on the traditional burger yields Kobe beef hot dog sliders with mustard and onion piccalilli on buttery grilled brioche buns. At dinner, guests can order à la carte or select the three-course prix-fixe menu ($58), Top of the Hub tasting menu ($77) or chef's tasting menu ($97). Wine pairings are also available. Starters may range from spicy lobster soup to pan-seared foie gras with pickled rhubarb, strawberry pink peppercorn jelly and brioche toast. Continue with native seafood cioppino or New York strip steak. Boston cream pie makes an appropriate end to the meal. Stop by the lounge for a nightcap and listen to live jazz. When making a reservation, be sure to request a window table.
