Headed to Boston this weekend to see some friends and take them out as a thanks for some work they did for me. I've known them forever so it's not about impressing them with bells and whistles. It's about going out with friends and having a great time while eating great food. I'm staying in Cambridge with them so near there would be ideal. They do have a car so we could drive if need be.
I'm looking for that place that's consistently good....it's a fun place to eat...moderately priced (main course under/near $20)...some place we'll say, "oh, remember that dinner from ________?"...a real "find" that only "locals would know about."
Too much to ask for? I hope not!
