Thanks MC - When I say downtown, I'm thinking Financial District area. I live in the North End, and work downtown, so close would be good for an after work thing. Sounds like No. 9 is the way to go or Eastern Standard Kitchen. Oh, what I mean by "trendy but not annoying people" might not exist. I'm looking for a place where my girlfriend and I can dress up a little, but not be surrounded by investment bankers talking about their workout routines and protein shakes. That would not strike a good mood in either of us. Thanks again for everyone's help!
Hi there - So, I'm looking for all you chowhounds for some advice on a good martini. I reviewed some of the old postings and there are a lot of mixed reviews. So, here is what I am looking for in my martini experience: 1) A good drink first and foremost. 2) A great view (of the city if possible or the water) 3) Trendy, but not annoying people 4) Not too crowded - so I can have a conversation
Oh - location. If it is downtown in Boston, that would be great.
Hi there - I'm looking for a cute, little restaurant. Not crazy expensive, but certainly not cheap. I'm not looking for basic American food, but maybe something hip/edgy. I live in the North End...so anywhere relatively close? Really I'm open to suggestions. New to Boston and need to take my lady friend out. If I can't swing it, it might be a 5 scoop sundae night and then no one wins.
