I've offered to find a Chowhoundish restaurant for dinner for 16. We're in town for a national convention in April. Some of us are Chowhounds; the rest will go along for the culinary ride. Two years ago our convention was in Chicago. I scored reservations at Alinea. Several of us are still drooling; the others didn't 'get it' but had a good time. Prefer walking or cab distance from the Westin-Copley Place. Thanks!
