A friend and I are looking for a place to have dinner in the next couple of weeks that's convenient between where we both live, and the Mass. Ave. general area seems to work best for both of us. She mentioned Scutra, and after doing a quick Google search, haven't found any mention of this place here on the Boston board.
Has anyone tried it? Alison Arnett reviewed it last October and for the most part, liked it (yes, I know - can't always count on her recs). Just curious if any 'hounds have tried it.

My friend and I both want to try Elements, but she knows her husband would also like that and wants to save it for a special occasion with him. Another thought was La Buona Vita - (http://www.labuonavita.com/)
Any other recommendations in that general area? I'd like to stay away from Indian and sushi.
