I'm a Boston resident running the marathon in April. My parents are flying in and planning to take me + boyfriend and his family out for a nice dinner after the race (probably 6 or 7 o'clock). We'll be a party of 7. If it were up to me, I'd go for steak and head to my favorite Capital Grille. However, my dad is unnecessarily a little bit of a tight wad, and is balking at the idea of paying for a steakhouse dinner for 7 (guess I can't blame him, I can't afford it!). So, any suggestions where I can get a good cut of meat and still impress for not too expensive? My parents are staying at the Taj, I live in Fenway, and the bf's family will be coming in from Cohasset (although earlier in the day, they should all be around Copley Square for my finish and then drinks).
Price range of $20-$30 a person, plus wine (some flexibility). Mom has suggested Atlantic Fish but that place seems to have no appeal to me, plus it's practically ON the finish line so I'd think logistically it would be a difficult pick.
I'd really appreciate any suggestions! I'm normally really good at picking restaurants but this situation has left me befuddled!
