From breakfast to last call

Off the Common

When you're looking for Boston Common restaurants, there's not a better place to start than at Off the Common. Our newly updated lobby restaurant blends contemporary interior design with a menu of fresh, season, locally inspired cuisine.

We are so committed to providing regional products and flavors for our guests that we work with “Trace and Trust”. This organization ensures the seafood serve is locally and sustainably caught, and provides the location and origin of the day’s catch, for a dining experience unique among Boston Back Bay restaurants.

Off the Common is a destination for dining throughout the day. Choose from our extensive buffet for breakfast, or delicious a la carte items, such as our Lobster Benedict. Our lunch selections are diverse and delectable, from soups and seasonal salads to lobster rolls, sandwiches, burgers and more. For dinner, we invite you to enjoy the taste of New England and try our seafood, chicken or pasta.

Our wine list is extensive, with both new and old world offerings by the glass or the bottle. We also offer local beers on tap and a wide selection of liquor options and non-alcoholic drinks. Top off your choice with one of our exquisite desserts and you’ll understand why Off the Common is one of Boston’s most sought-after restaurants.
