Looking for hip place with great food to watch Red Sox this Saturday

tuftsauto | Oct 23, 2013 10:11 AM

This Saturday, two friends(mid-twenties couple) will be coming to visit to do a fancy night out with my girlfriend and I(also mid-twenties foodies). We're planning to dress up(casual suits, dresses) for the occasion, and are looking for a restaurant and/or bar to match.

Restaurant requests:
-Great food. GF is mostly veg(eats white chicken/turkey). Others don't have restrictions. Preferably not American food, but are open to it if the food is excellent.
-Won't stand out in suits, but not overly fancy either.
-Medium price range - $15-25 for entrees.
-TV's to watch Red Sox game.

Bar requests:
-Good cocktails.
-Won't stand out in suits, but not overly fancy either.
-TV's to watch Red Sox game.

Location:
-Boston/South End.
-Possibly Back Bay area because we're considering going to Top of the Hub later for drinks.
-T accessible.
-Live in Somerville/Cambridge, so would prefer to make a trip to the city, but would be open to Somerville/Cambridge spots if there are standouts.

So far, I've come up with the following ideas:
-Mistral - Most entrees are above the price range, so we'd be going with the lower priced dishes.
-Deuxave - Same as above.
-Island Creek Oyster Bar
-Brasserie Jo.

Thanks for your help!

PS: There is a unique twist to this story. One of the diners doesn't have a sense of smell. If anyone happens to suffer from this and has any restaurant recommendations(specifically for this Saturday, as well as in general), we'd love to hear them.
