Hi all - my husband and I will be celebrating our 2nd anniversary next week - and our first one in the same city! As new transplants to this area (and to New York, but that's another story), we'd like to check out someplace fellow chowhounds feel is unique to boston.
Some general guidelines - we're looking to spend no more than $100-$120 total for 2 or 3 courses (including two glasses of wine, tax, and tip), love many different types of food, and have no dietary restrictions. New American, seafood, and Northern Italian are some our favorites, but we're open to anything. We live in Somerville but are willing to travel by car or T, and would love to check out places in downtown Boston or the North End - romantic atmosphere is a plus!
So far we've enjoyed Dali, the bar menu at Chez Henri, Casablanca, and lots of lower-price stuff (O'Sullivans, Hi-Rise, etc), but would like to try something new. Based on the boards I've read, I'm leaning towards someplace in the North End (perhaps some careful ordering at Prezza or Carmen's followed by pastries/coffee at Modern), or Legal Seafood; I was considering Hungry Mother, but they're closed next week. Thanks in advance for the advice!
