Welcome to JD's

During the Great Depression, The Ritz-Carlton Boston survived by turning on all the lights and putting Benny Goodman and his Jazz band on the roof letting the excitement of the music waft over the city.

After listening to guest feedback and reading comments cards, we discovered that people were yearning to have a special experience with more of a metropolitan up-scale vibe. We decided to re-create the big-city Jazz Supper Club of the 1940’s with a contemporary twist …without the cigarette smoke of course. JD’s, (the initials actually stand for Jazz and Dining) now features nightly entertainment on our Grand Piano from world-class musicians who have performed all over the country and with many of the Jazz Legends.

Our Executive Chef designs thoughtfully composed menus that dovetail beautifully with our award-winning wine list, and the atmosphere of JD’s is the sort of intimate quiet elegance that makes you feel you could be sitting in Manhattan, Boston, or Chicago.
