Just moved here from NYC for grad school. My boyfriend's coming up this weekend and we're celebrating his birthday. I need recommendations for restaurants that meet the following criteria:
- Cost: $40 per person (in addition to an entree, we will probably split an appetizer and a dessert, as well as a bottle of wine. Don't want a bottle of wine over $30.
- Location: North End, Charlestown, Back Bay, Beacon Hill, South End -- basically something walkable from the Common. Nothing out in Somerville or Cambridge or Watertown.
- Cuisine: Italian, New American, Mediterranean. No Asian food.
- Atmosphere: romantic (or at least with candles). Noise is a turn-off.
Your help is most appreciated!!!!
