So... am hosting 3 academic colleagues + significant others (8 total) for celebratory dinner. All serious about food but budget has to be oriented more towards academia rather than Wall Street. Even better if unique, new to well-traveled folks who also frequent Boston restaurants. Limited ambient noise factor. Great/reasonable wine list. All this and still fun, upbeat place!
Might have thought Journeyman but event is on a day that are closed (as w/ Bondir). Have done similar at Deuxave but wondered if there was another option at better price point.
A subtle call to make. Thoughts?! Appreciate any input.
