NYE dinner - seafood, chicken but not too much red meat on menu - backbay/south end

Will be visiting Boston from Singapore and need some recs for NYE family dinner. Have tickets to the Pops and planning on getting there around 9:45pm, but willing to consider places in Cambridge if able to get to the concert with minimum hassle (taxis?). Difficult part is that no one in the family eats red meat or lamb and most NYE menus seem to be concentrated on both. No exotic game either so rabbit, pigeons, etc. are out as well.

No Asian restaurants since we live in Asia and it probably makes more sense to have it here. Preferably upscale but not stuffy or formal, nothing too loud as parents will definitely start complaining about noise. Oh, and no French. Seems like a tall order as I'm typing this out...

Anyway, I've looked through the boards and came up with the following list, please feel free to add on or suggest other alternatives:

1. Rialto
2. The Blue Room
3. Prezza
4. Troquet
5. No. 9 Park
6. Rendezvous
7. Toro
8. Tapeo
9. Evoo
10. Dante

I've left out places like Mistral (French), Hammersley's (NYE menu didn't work), Radius (will seem similar to what we will be having in NYC the week before visiting Boston), ECG (seems too casual), etc.

What with making reservations in NYC, Philly and Boston for the same trip, any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance!
