Mother and Aunt visiting, looking for Saturday night dinner, 3-4 courses each (unless there are affordable chef's/tasting menus). Went to Bondir in Cambridge last time, and it was the best dinner I've had in Boston since everything was spectacularly designed/prepared and we could build a meal because all dishes are available as half portions (still big) for $15. I'm not looking for very fancy or very expensive, so L'espalier, Craigie, and places like that are out of question. A more spacious gastropub would also be good.
Any suggestions help!
