My manager's wife would like to be taken somewhere "glamorous" for her birthday...a restaurant where she can dress up, have good food, and perhaps go dancing afterwards. They are in their 50s and moderately adventurous eaters. As an example of their taste, they enjoy Eastern Standard Kitchen, Island Creek Oyster Bar, etc.
He asked for my advice but both he and I are a bit stumped over this (and we aren't entirely sure what she means by "glamorous"). When I searched for "glamorous" in the Boston section of Chowhound, exactly one result came up (and it didn't have anything to do with a glamorous restaurant!).
I've thought of L'Espalier or Menton (maybe with a visit to Drink or Lucky's Lounge afterwards) but other ideas would be appreciated.
