I'm a Boston hound looking to reserve a space for a 12 person rehearsal dinner on Saturday July 4. I have been spending some time on Chowhound trying to narrow down the options but I would love to have your help making a decision.
Here are our parameters:
-11 adults + 1 13 month old child
-We do not want a noisy restaurant
-Nothing too adventurous for the families
-Not too close to the fireworks (ruling out Ansill, for example)
-$20-$30 average entree price
Estia looks like a good choice but it seems a little too expensive and maybe too adventurous.
Branzino is closed on July 4.
Davios might be a little too expensive.
Matyson and Melograno seem too noisy.
Restaurants on my mind include Osteria, Supper, Paradiso, Roys (yes, I know its a chain but my parents like the food). Should I break the budget and go with Estia?
