Hi hounds - planning a nice dinner for my wife's b-day. Bondir is the perfect spot for us - but alas, they're closed on Sat Jun 30 (?!). So, I'm plumbing the group for other similar suggestions? Her ideal cuisine is light on the meat, heavy on vegetables and locally sourced ingredients. eg. Bondir
As you might guess from my nick, I'm more of the snout to tail type - craigie, coppa, etc are in my bullseye but not so much hers. We range from high end L'espalier outings to super 88 - but for this evening, looking for a nice place thats neither too fancy nor too basic, yet feels like a special night out . Again, Bondir seemed to fit the bill perfectly. Strip-Ts, much written about, and near our home, would be too casual, lespalier or similar too much.
We've been to Oleana a bunch which we both adore, also we find ourselves at Scampo too often for various comforty foods. Looking for something different that our semi-regular haunts. We live in Belmont (il Casale great, but we go all the time), any place Cambridge, back bay/south end, downtown/north end is in range.
Appreciate your collective wisdom.
