Blue Hill or Veritas for meeting for drinks before dinner

LisaG | Feb 25, 2004 09:25 AM

We (three women celebrating our '0's, i.e., turning 50, 50, and 40) have reservations on a Saturday for both Blue Hill and Veritas. We will be meeting 3 friends (one brother-in-law and his 2 friends) for drinks-only before dinner. One of the criteria for choosing the restaurant will be the bar at each, and whether or not it is conducive to 6 people meeting beforehand. Looking for enough room for 6, lively surroundings, pretty area physically.

Any thoughts on either restauant's bar area? I haven't been to either restaurant, so don't know what the feel is.

Alternately, we could meet our friends in the area (within a block or 2 of either restaurant) Any suggestions regarding a close-by bar (fun, high-energy, yet still in the "nice" category) would be greatly appreciated.
