Graduation Dinner

ethereal | Jan 24, 2007 08:51 AM

Probably jumping the gun, but like a true CH, the meals are the most important part of the trip!

We'll be in Boston/Cambridge for my sister's graduation in will thousands of other families I'm sure. Looking to you for some recommendations on restaurants.

Most of us will not have spent much time in Boston, so everything will be new to us. And those who live in Beantown are college students, so outside of pizza, things will also be new to them. Would like to dine at THE Boston establishments...the places you'd recommend to people visiting for the first time. We'll have 8 in our party and we do love to laugh, so nothing too romantic or quiet in atmosphere. Price is not a concern, however, we don't need to go to the most expensive restaurant if they don't have the most wonderful food to go with it. Upscale is great, but the meal should not = tuition for the year.

Cuisine, we're well travelled and from the west coast, so from what I read, places like Ming's Blue Ginger won't appeal. If it's ethnic cuisine it should be very authentic or a well executed variation on a theme. Otherwise, we eat everything. Dad likes Italian and French. Brother in law loves Asian (any Asian, really). Mom loves seafood. We can all generally eat happily with any type of cuisine. Except maybe Scottish--haven't quite learned to stomach haggis yet.

Thanks in advance for your help.
