Hi Chowhounders -
I've been combing reviews on the internets to find the PERFECT restaurant for a valentines day dinner in Boston(we are going to be celebrating on the 12th).
I want to make this a night to remember (wink wink nudge nudge, cue the church bells). The restaurant will be a precursor to dessert (which I've planned to do somewhere else).
I need a restaurant with an intimate dining area. And when I mean intimate, I mean quiet, romantic lighting, and not stuffy. A place where, when we are eating, we won't notice anyone else. It'll be easy for us to focus on ourselves and each other.
The service needs to be excellent, and needless to say, so does the food.
In terms of food, we are fans of all types of cuisine. I'd like to stay away from japanese or other asian cuisines, mainly because we are asian, and all we eat is asian food..all..the..time. Plus, I'm not sure how romantic a plate of sushi can be.
I do not have a tight budget... but a restaurant like L'Espelier and their $185 gavage (perperson!) or whatever it's called.... just a tad bit expensive /s.
I'm looking for a great romantic atmosphere.... you know how in movies the main character takes the leading lady to a fancy-schmancy restaurant and they fall in love? Well we're in love already, but I want that restaurant.
And if things go well, it will be a resutarant we will remember for the rest of our lives.
some places I'm considering:
Bistro Du Midi
any and all advice will be taken into consideration. And I'll let you all know what the verdict is afterwards, and where we went!
