The Bancroft - Burlington
A carefully curated beverage program is one of the highlights of this modern bi-level steakhouse based in Burlington, Mass. The Bancroft's menu showcases innovative and seasonal offerings, plus an enviable selection of house-made products such as Bancroft Barrel Select Privateer Rum, bitters and tinctures. The wine list is filled with selections originating from small, family-owned companies.
This is all designed to work well, of course, with entrees, particularly steaks ranging from Black Angus filets to prime New York ribeye. Seafood choices are also aplenty at The Bancroft, starting with the seafood tower layered with lobster tails, local oysters and Wellfleet clams as well as pastrami-cured smoked salmon.
The restaurant's decor is chic and playful, with rich leather textures, exposed brick walls and contemporary light fixtures adding flavor to the dining room. A number of colorful, offbeat paintings throughout The Bancroft's space are from local artists.
