My wonderful wife has a major “middle age” birthday coming up and I want to plan a group celebratory dinner for her on Sunday April 22 (which is not Easter or Patriots Day Weekend). Due to guest travel issues beyond my control, it will need to be on that night from about 6- 8 pm and will have about 8-10 people in all.
As she is a vegetarian (but eats eggs and diary products), I need a place that is “veggie friendly” while also being great for people who are not vegetarians. A good wine list is a must. There will be no kids. Anywhere in Boston, Cambridge, Brookline or Newton works for location. Cost is not a major issue. A private room would be preferable.
I have thought about Lala Rokh, Bistro du Midi, or EVOO. Oleana and Scampo seem too crowded or noisy to work for this dinner, although we like the food at both.
