Looking for a good martini

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!

Looking for a good martini

I'm talking real martinis for me and probably a cosmo for my girlfriend. Are we looking at 10-15 per drink? Any tasty bar foods? If not, no biggie.

Looking for a good martini

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.

Please let me know. Thanks!

Romantic restaurant in Boston?? Little Help!

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.
