Located on Beacon Street in Brookline’s Washington Square, The Fireplace is the quintessential New England grill and barbeque. As its name might suggest, the restaurant’s menu focuses on wood-smoked and rotisserie dishes, and uses only the freshest regional ingredients in its simple, thoughtfully prepared fare.

The split-level dining room with its floor-to-ceiling windows and blazing fireplace is sun-filled and airy in the summer, yet warm and cozy in the winter. A neighborhood restaurant that draws crowds from afar, the Fireplace also has live music and Fireside Chats, their semi-monthly wine, spirits and beer tastings.
