Looking for bistro-ish dinner Friday-- Back Bay/Kenmore area

ginafly | Oct 27, 2010 10:01 AM

Hi all. I'm looking for a place for dinner Friday for two. We are on a schedule and therefore need a reservation. Eastern Standard, my first thought, is booked. So basically, I still want something in that vein (doesn't need to be be strictly French...something more American bistro-y with Italian and/or French influences is fine). We're in the mood for trying a new-to-us place, also. It seems there are some new options in that 'hood, but nothing I've heard raves about.

I've thought of:

Towne--It seems pretentious but Lydia Shire's lobster pizzas are always a welcome treat
City Table--I've read some decent things and the menu look fun--anyone been?
Sel de la Terre on Boylston--Been to the original location many times...some meals better than others
Post 390--fun space, but does anyone like the food?

I'd welcome your thoughts on the above and any other suggestions!

Eastern Standard
528 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215

Sel de la Terre
774 Boylston St., Boston, MA 02199
