Yvonne’s – The ol’ razzle dazzle

Tucked just away from the main hustle and bustle of Downtown Crossing, Yvonne’s is a refined yet playful supper club in a handsome hideaway accented with marble and mahogany wood. Decked out with glittering chandeliers juxtaposed with classical-style portraits reimagined with favorite celebrities (think Tom Hanks as George Washington over the fire place), Yvonne’s manages to balance the glamour of typical pseudo-speakeasy bars, without taking themselves too seriously. Opened in 2015, Yvonne’s has filled the bones of what was formerly Locke-Ober, a Boston-classic that opened in 1862 and remained a bastion of the city’s dining scene for over a century.

I highly recommend Yvonne’s for taking Boston guests when you want to make a memorable first impression – read: also a fun date spot. In fact, step your entrance up a notch: instead of approaching the front door straight from Winter Street, take the road less traveled by entering via the subtly-spooky alleyway that connects the perpendicular Temple Place to Yvonne’s Winter Place (it’ll build up anticipation!). 

The menu’s a bit of a grab bag of international trends served up as highly Instagram-able small plates – and while this is something people love to hate, there’s no denying executive chef Juan Pedrosa genuinely is creating delicious food under all the fanfare. I’m personally a big fan of their highly shareable Stone Fired Pitas, as well as the “Mash Up” cocktail (a festive mix of vodka, Saint Germain, lemon lavander, and bubbles).
