UpStairs on The Square - The gold and pink UpStairs main dining room (Soirée
Room), reminiscent of a glowing and colorful jewel-box-like supper club, is lit with the
flicker of working fireplace at each end of the room. Distinguished by a small elegant
bar with silver leaf “champagne bubbles” as well as the famous, exuberant round
windows facing the park, this main dining room is clearly an heir to the celebratory
dining room at UpStairs at the Pudding, and its artisanal menu has drawn raves and a
rare 3 1/2 star review from the Boston Globe.
