I know this may not be best place to post this kind of inquiry but I will go ahead.
I am posting for Boston ASL meetup group. We meet in Cambridge/Somerville area.
We used to meet at Taverns in Square in Porter Square, Cambridge. But due to football season, we had trouble getting table few weeks ago so we had to relocate to Panera Bread cafe behind CVS in Porter Square shopping center. According to poll that head organizer posted for people who come to our meetup, many people rather bar/restaurant atmosphere than cafe atmosphere.
Our goal is find restaurant/bar that have NO televisions and good lightning (so we can see each other signing).
