On Friday, my husband and I will be traveling from NYC to Boston to celebrate my 28th birthday. We are still exploring options for dinner on Friday. It seems that we would like to go to a Northern Italian restaurant where pasta is the star. Specifically, we enjoy fresh pasta and seafood dishes. In addition, we enjoy good service where we do not feel rushed and a fun, lively atmosphere - we tend to enjoy getting a drink at the bar beforehand. Although we will be staying in Boston Common area, we are willing to travel within Boston if it is worthwhile.
