I have a special Anniversary coming up and I would like to choose one special restaurant in the Greater Boston area. Location and price are not important, could be Boston, Cambridge or outskirts. The type of food is not critical (though my spouse will not eat sushi), can be French, Italian, New American, etc. Atmosphere and service are important but the food has to be number one. We don't usually do high-end, fine dining so I have not tried many of the more expensive restaurants in the Boston area (I don't think I have been to L'Espalier since Moncef Meddab was the chef-owner). We did eat at the Modern Gourmet in Newton about 29 years ago.
