So Cal 'hound looking for high end experience for celebratory dinner

mcgrath | Jan 31, 201412:55 PM

My wife and I are coming to town in a couple weeks to celebrate a significant professional accomplishment of our adult son. There will be four of us and all four have substantial experience with and appreciation for great cuisine. (OK, we're foodies, but I hate that term.)

Here's what we're looking for:

a) Fabulous, inventive preparations of cuisine with (hopefully but not necessarily) a New England influence;

b) Not Asian or Italian;

c) A refined, quiet ambiance, but not stuffy;

d) Within a 15-20 minute drive of downtown Boston;

e) Price not an issue

Oh, and this is probably a dumb question for you locals, but I'm from Calif. and need to ask if it's legal / acceptable to bring in a bottle of very special wine for the occasion. Thanks!
