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.
