Thank you all again for your suggestions. After looking at the menus of the restaurants suggested, we have decided to go back to Hammersly's. A special thank you to Bugsmum for the suggestion. An extra special thank you Qaj for the Salts suggestion. I have been trying to get my wife to go there for years and she has finally agreed to do the roast duck thing for my birthday next month.
Budget is not really an issue. And thank you all for the replies so far. I appreciate the Cambridge suggestions, but we are staying at XV Beacon and would like to keep it in Boston.
Hello fellow Chowhounders. This is my first post and I need a little help. I am looking for a restaurant for my 5th wedding anniversay. My wife and I live in Cambridge, but would like to dine in Boston (Not North End). We are not really interested in a place where I will have to wear a tie. Also, we are not into molecular gastronomy. The worst meal I ever had in my life was at Toque in Montreal because I paid $300 and there was no food in my food. So here are the places we have been to and liked in the past year. The rankings are based on the food, with service second and atmosphere last.
Thank you in advance for your help.
