Abe & Louie’s History

It all started with a passion for excellence.

In 1965, Charles F. Sarkis established the modern restaurant business in Boston. Through the simple philosophy of providing guests with quality cuisine and artful service, Abe & Louie’s was born into the Back Bay Restaurant Group family of concepts. Named after Charles’ father and good friend, Abe & Louie’s has since set the standard for steakhouses across the country, becoming known for its undeniably superior service and unmatched flavor combinations.

More than a decade later, Tavistock Restaurant Collection is proud to continue the Abe & Louie’s legacy as a Boylston Street namesake and as part of its broader portfolio of restaurant brands. Abe & Louie’s signature menu items, such as prime aged Midwestern steaks and fresh seafood accompanied by seasonal produce, have earned several high-ranking awards from notable outlets since its debut. Coupled with an award-winning wine list featuring more than 200 globally sourced palates, Abe & Louie’s in Boston, and its sister restaurant in Boca Raton, remain beloved east coast landmarks.
