It's been about two years since my husband and I have been to Boston. The last time we were there we enjoyed East Coast Grill, Grotto, Henrietta's Table (for Sunday Brunch)and Pomodoro. We'll be back next weekend for five nights culminating in my 40th birthday. We'll probably revisit East Coast Grill, Grotto and Henrietta's Table. I'm looking for someplace really special for my birthday as well as suggestions for somewhere really good in the North End (from what I remember Pomodoro was good-we're just looking to try something else). We like most cuisine except Indian. I love outdoor dining in nice weather (which there's not been much lately). I'm looking for somewhere nice but not overly formal or stuffy. we'll be staying at Jury's Boston but will have a car or take a cab to restaurants. Thanks for all your help!!!!
