A friend and I are visiting Boston in September with just one free night for dinner (I know, I know....). I'd like to go somewhere serving modern, creative takes on New England classics, or at least using unique local ingredients. I don't want to have the same thing that we'd get in a good restaurant at home in San Francisco, in other words.
I don't know where we're staying yet, but somewhere downtown/Back Bay would probably be convenient from whereever we end up. (Transportation will be taxi in all likelihood.) We're willing to spend up to $100 per person for the right meal.
