We are invited out by a NYC visitor who is staying in Newton Centre and does not want to travel from her base. atmosphere nice but informal. Food more than bistro or bar food. Constraints include one person who is gluten allergic but I know eats Indian food. So the surrounding W towns are out of question; Lumiere and Blue Ribbon, as well.
From Board, I get the idea that 51 Lincoln is a favorite these days. Ideas welcome.
