I live in New York, but I'm throwing a bridal shower for my friend who lives in Boston this summer, so I need some recommendations for possible location. I'm inclined to stay away from Four Seasons-like places for high tea... are there any smaller, cozier, more low-key places for tea, etc. that would accommodate a group of up to 20 people?
Factors include, reasonable pricing, accommodating/friendly/not-pretnetious staff, preferably in the Boston/Cambridge area, but western suburbs okay too.
If none come to mind, what about good caterer recommendations?
Thanks so much.
