Menu with a good, basic selection in Boston/Brighton?

Bob Dobalina | May 11, 2006 01:15 PM

We are taking a friend out for a birthday dinner on Saturday night - he suggested Sunset Grill or Cactus Club - but I think we can do better, while avoiding the BU undergrad scene.

Any suggestions for within a two mile radius of Kenmore?

The ideal place would have a mildly expansive menu with decent fish options, and not too frou-frou or pricey.

Tapeo was suggested and is always an option - and there are tons of little joints of various ethnicities, but I guess I was thinking of something closer and broader in range, like the Sunset or Cactus, only...better?

Eastern Standard and Great Bay were already nixed as "not that good for the price" and "too fancy" respectively by the birthday boy - so hopefully you can see the dynamic tension at work here...

Thanks in advance.
