My brother in law is giving a reading in Harvard Square. About 8 people want to get together for a nice enough, casual, but not expensive dinner, afterward, right in the Square. Has anyone eaten at the new Grendel's Den? or John Harvard Brew House or Pho Pasteur? Or are there any other suggestions? I think Casablanca is too expensive, although I may be wrong. I am estimating $20 per person tops, and one person is allergic to Indian food. Bertucci's is lacking some interesting atmosphere for this simple, but happy, celebration.
Thanks so much as always for ideas and guidance.
