... it would be called?
I'm looking for something along the lines of the Franklin for Friday or Saturday night, but would prefer to go someplace that takes reservations. To give you an idea, my other favorites include Union, Oleana, Central Kitchen, the bar at Chez Henri, Green Street (circa 2002-2004), Cragie Street etc.
From reading the board (I've been away from Boston for a while) Eastern Standard, Grotto and Gargoyles seem interesting, but I'd prefer a smaller, less formal space (preferably where jeans are acceptable.)
On a related point: We're avoiding Valentine's Day for eating out, but it has occured to me that others may have the same idea. Is this weekend going to be a mob scene with all of the people too smart to go out tonight? If so, which night do you suppose will be the calmer of the two?
Thanks for your help!
