I have been lucky to have a babysitter every Thursday night for the last two months and probably the next two. My wife and I have gone out on all Chow-discovered restaurants and had a great time. But now I've run out and thought I would appeal to the group. We've already been to:
Isabella's & Bamboo (Dedham)
Vela, Maugus and Jimmy's (Wellesley)
Fava, Sweet Basil, Masala Arts (Needham)
Pava, Sabra (ick), Met Bar, Le Soir, Skipjacks, Legals, Appetito, Capital Grille (Newton)
Plus too many to mention in Brookline, Allston.
Framingham, Natick is good too. Definitely looking for great food, nice restaurant experience.
