Looking for special place to celebrate a birthday and thought to avoid the usual challenges in town and add something unique by driving. Looking for someplace relatively easy from Boston (~30sh minutes?), with possible pre-dinner strolling or perhaps nearby, actually worth the drive, and still able to make it back that night. Places considered: Herb Lyceum (only open Fri and Sat), Providence (Al Forno), Portsmouth (Strawberry Banke?). Have been to Golden Lamb in CT recently. Any suggestions?!
