Top of the Hub Restaurant Review

: Floor-to-ceiling, two-story windows feature 360-degree views of the city, from Cambridge to Southie. The restaurant is a favorite with tourists who stop in after visiting the Skywalk Observatory. While tourists are the mainstay, and the prices reflect this, Top of the Hub has made a name for itself among locals with its flavorful cuisine. A creative lunch take on the traditional burger yields Kobe beef hot dog sliders with mustard and onion piccalilli on buttery grilled brioche buns. Specials may include lentil and Italian sausage soup or pan-seared mahi with butternut squash ravioli, green beans and tomatoes in a lemon butter sauce with capers. The cedar-plank roasted salmon comes with duck fat potatoes and chipotle linguiƧa butter, while grilled filet mignon arrives with red potatoes and blue cheese fondue. Stop by the lounge for a nightcap and listen to live jazz. When making a reservation, be sure to request a window table.
