I'm a Boston 'Hound that used to live in NYC (10 years ago) and am coming down in a few weeks to celebrate my 35th with some girlfriends for the night. We're all adventurous eaters- and dine out in Boston regularly.
I'm torn between heading to an old favorite (that met the minimal requirements of my poor graduate student lifestyle) for dinner or trying someplace new? As my friends may try to foot the bill- I'd like to be conscious of price...say, no more than $70pp. We'll probably stay between Union Square and Mid-town...Good food. Good cocktails/bar. Good service. These are the biggest targets, however.
