Me too!! Have you ever seen a frozen yogurt machine like that anywhere else?

Most elegant new restaurant

Have you been to Mamma Maria? Could fit the bill. I really love the atmosphere there.

The strange saga of UpperWest

I recently ate upstairs (at what was formerly the Garden at the Cellar but still has the same menu?) and used a card.

Neptune Oyster?

I'm surprised they're still open - they're the last Brigham's standing. I heard they were supposed to close at some point - I wouldn't be surprised if you squeaked by and caught the last of the inventory?

Metrowest restaurant with private room

Do you have a sense of price range? What about Papa Razzi in Concord? It's much closer to the Lexington side but you could get that back room with a group that size, I think.

Pre-ballet dining

Also - I haven't been back to Petit Robert Bistro since it became Central Bistro, but it was always a favorite of mine.

Pre-ballet dining

I'd say Shojo or Erbaluce. I've also done Sip a few times before shows - I know it's not everyone's favorite but it's a good spot.

Moving to Andover / Salem area, need guidance from locals please!

You'll definitely be able to find Ro-Tel here too :)

Dumpling Daugher Weston

Not to be difficult but I'm really curious - what do you mean when you say flabby?

Best place for seafood dinner

Oh me too! I love Barking Crab for a beer after work in the summer, but I wouldn't call it the best place around for seafood.

Boston Globe's Munch Madness about to begin

I've been to 38 - staggering. Not sure if that's something to be proud of!

Pizza

Ditto - while I prefer others now, "Greek" style certainly has a special place in my heart.

Fenway/Kenmore: Good, cheap restaurants?

Yech - I went to Sonsie for brunch this weekend and was wildly unimpressed. Neither my food nor my DC's was worth eating. Fun spot for drinks, but I'd stop there.

People seem to like Asta, though I haven't been. If you search the board, you'll see quite a bit of chatter. If you're willing to walk a little further, Salty Pig by Back Bay Station isn't too expensive and is a fun spot.

Frozen Four at the Garden

I've never heard of Azure - would you mind sharing more about it? I'm intrigued!

Places to eat near Tufts?

I'm torn - there are a lot of really good restaurants in the area, but part of me wants to recommend places more frequented by students since that'd be a more realistic view. Students often spend time in Ball Square - if you're looking to do brunch, Sound Bites is quite popular. Helen's Roast Beef on Boston Ave is pretty bare bones, but also a place my friend often went.

Restaurant Week Winter 2015

You weren't kidding about that garlic flan. Oh my goodness. EVOO has always seemed like an underdog to me - they're not mentioned in a lot of conversations, but their food is really great. I was there last week, and the ambiance is a lot better than I remembered too. It's going back in the rotation.

Frozen Four at the Garden

Neptune Oyster is in the North End and said to be one of the best lobster rolls around - may not be a six block walk, but pretty close to where you're staying.

Ana Sortun - her food is so creative!

30th Birthday - Somewhat more specific request

I've seen a similar set-up at Tico in the bar area - it gets a bit loud there, but it's a really fun vibe. Along the same lines, I've seen similar groups at East Coast Grill and Red Lantern.

Otto or Picco

Ditto. I like Toscanini's, I love Christina's. I used to live halfway between and went to both regularly. A plus for me at Christina's is the wide variety of sorbets - so delicious.

Fenway/Kenmore: Good, cheap restaurants?

I love Otto Pizza, and there are outposts by BU on Comm Ave as well as in Coolidge Corner - both easily accessible to Kenmore. BU's probably about a ten minute walk.

Also it's already been said but to reiterate - I really love Mei Mei. I frequently make trips over there (very out of the way for me) just because it's so delicious. Not a bad walk and SO worth it. You won't regret it.

If you're willing to take the T to Brookline Village, Cutty's is so delicious. Orinoco is great too.

Also, I know it's a chain, but Yard House isn't too bad and has plenty of options. Sweet Cheeks Q is good barbecue and I think you could get out of there for under $20 per person if you're not drinking.

Best Green Line-accessible lunch between Back Bay and Newton?

It sounds like you're looking for a sitdown spot. If that's not the case, Cutty's!! I dream of their sandwiches. You could also walk over to Salty Pig before taking the green line.

Catering party for 15-20

My dream would be to get catering from Sofra. I've also had catering from East Coast Grill that was fun.

There's always ordering online... not the same, but an option!

Cocktails/Lunch after Event at Boston Center for the Arts in the South End.

Masa definitely does brunch - they have the fiesta brunch special I *think* all day Saturday and then earlier on Sunday. If that's what you're looking to do, I'd suggest a reservation.

Saturday evening cocktails for grown ladies

I like Saloon - but it gets CROWDED. If you're at a table, it could be fine, but I've been to the bar on a Saturday evening and had trouble getting to the bar to order a drink. We gave up and left.

Saturday evening cocktails for grown ladies

I think it's a tough balance - finding places with good cocktails that are fun but also where you can stay hours on a Saturday night without feeling like you should get a move on. I'm thinking Inman Square - East Coast Grill isn't what it used to be, but still has fun cocktails and since it's less crowded, you could probably stay a while.

If others have been to Study in Kendall Square, it might be worthwhile to hear what their experience has been.
