My brother is coming into town at the end of January, staying downtown. He has a work dinner at Marliave on Thursday night and I'm having the whole family over on Saturday night. I wanted one dinner downtown for just my wife, my brother, and I. We went to Menton last time he was in town but I'd rather not have something that expensive. He's staying at the Taj so somewhere either walking or a short cab ride would be best. In the recent past we've done Hammersly's and Bistro du Midi. Any other thoughts? It doesn't need to be formal but it should have great food and a good wine or cocktail program. I'm thinking maybe Troquet or perhaps Bogie's Place? I just moved back to Cambridge after 5 years away so I haven't been to too many new places.
