In April my husband & I will be taking his parents to see a Saturday afternoon show at the Colonial Theatre.
I work in the Back Bay, but am embarrassed to say I'm not sure where to take them for a cocktail & dinner afterward.
All 4 of us are adventurous eaters, and cost is not much of an object, though we're possibly less than willing to pay $400 for dinner & drinks, given what the theatre tickets already cost. We could be convinced by the right suggestion, though.
Right now I'm thinking we'll hop on the subway to Copley, which is more of my comfort zone, since I don't know much about the restaurants nearer to the Common.
Does anyone have recommendations for dinner, in any price range, near the Common? And maybe a place to get a martini beforehand?
Alternatively, what's your current favorite place for dinner near Copley?
