Chef Chris Coombs (dBar, Deuxave) is having a very eventful 2013! His third restaurant opened in the South End last week and he was named one of Forbes 30 under 30 in the food category. The new concept, Boston Chops, is an 'Urban Steak Bistro' serving modern versions of steakhouse classics including a variety of offal dishes, raw bar appetizers and homemade sauces.

The former Banq and Ginger Park space on Washington St. hasn't had much success in the past, but Coombs seems to have a knack for turning former flops into instant successes - Deuxave also opened in what was thought to be a jinxed location. On two different trips to Boston Chops, the place has been packed to the brim on both a weekend night and weeknight last week, so it seems to be off to a very successful start.

Here is some of what you can expect from the menu...
