Great, Different Recommendation for this Weekend

JDN74 | Feb 12, 2008 07:31 AM

My wife and I are coming to visit this weekend, and are taking some family out for dinner on Saturday. Although I grew up in Boston, I haven't lived there in a long time, and don't know what's good these days. My family gets out a LOT (probably out 3-4 nights/week), so we want to take them someplace that isn't on their usual circuit. They're fairly adventurous eaters, but not Tony Bourdain.

Over the past few years, our standbys have been Hammersley's and Union. Love them both, but want to do something different. Doesn't have to be SE...could be anywhere in Boston/Cambridge/beyond. We're also not trying to break the bank here (though there will be wine, etc.).

We were thinking of Toro, but then I saw that they don't take reservations. Pops was another recommendation. Or Ole in Cambridge (which I tried years ago and wasn't overly impressed with).

What's new, good, and exciting?
