need a spot (which takes reservations) on a friday night in june to grab dinner and watch yanks v. sox for about 30 people. we're all from ny (coming up for a hoop tourney). we can spread out; separate tables is fine.
doesn't need to a sports bar per se, but needs a bunch of plasmas and decent enough food (burgers are fine, italian probably better). someone recommended the sportsdepot, but i was looking for something a cut above that food-wise. someone else recommended '99', but would rather stay away from a chain.
we're staying in Waltham, but we'd like to eat in boston proper so that we can do a little walking around the city before & after. i'd guess anywhere in the back bay or around quincy market would be best.
any ideas? thanks
