My 21st birthday is coming up this summer (yes, I'm planning in advance) and I want to dine somewhere extraordinary. My family's lived in New York for the past couple of years, and I've spent a few birthdays there, but I'll be living in Cambridge this summer and I want to spend my 21st (and my first legal drink, finally) in the area. Basically, I'm looking for the best Boston has got to offer.
The dinner party will just be my family (mom, dad, me). Price is not an issue, though we'd also be bringing some of our own champagne, so it would be great if any posters had insight into corkage fees! My parents are huge wine people so a good & extensive wine list is a must! I am a self-professed cocktail geek. Foodwise, we will literally eat anything. Fancy places under consideration include No. 9 Park, Scampo, Marliave, Radius, O Ya, B&G, etc. I'm also thinking about Craigie on Main, Oleana, Ten Tables, Rendezvous, and Lumiere. I want to try something new, and I've already been to Eastern Standard, Neptune Oyster, Gaslight, Hungry Mother, Tupelo, and Drink. Green Street and Central Kitchen are regular haunts of mine. I'm less familiar with restaurants in the South End and in the metro area, so any advice about them would be greatly appreciated! And accessability is not an issue.
Thanks in advance!
