Discriminating friend coming to town for the week from San Francisco - critique my itinerary?

Swankalicious | May 12, 2011 05:10 PM

This friend used to work in the restaurant industry for years and continues to dine out regularly -- has excellent taste and price is (almost) no object. I'm in charge of giving him 7 or so must-try dinner places. He'll have a car, so doesn't have to be in Boston proper, although he will be staying at the Liberty and wants to stay in the general Boston-Cambridge vicinity but experience a variety of things. Here are my "top 7":

1. Bondir
2. Bergamot
3. Coppa
4. Craigie on Main
5. Prezza (or Pomodoro; I cannot decide)
6. Island Creek Oysters
7. Tico
8. Lala Rokh

He'll eat almost anything, very adventurous, high standards. I was also thinking about the reopened Locke Ober, though I have yet to go back. Or Menton, though I think the price point is a tad too high as we'll be dining out most nights. Thoughts?
