Sibling dinner in lieu of Christmas presents

julieapfel | Dec 19, 201406:16 AM     11

Hey all. Last year my husband and his brothers and I all went out to a nice dinner instead of getting each other Christmas gifts and we are planning on keeping up the tradition this year. I'd love your recs. Last year we went to Ribelle which was great but I think I'd like to get away from the "small plate" trend since I felt like a hungry hungry hippo every time a plate came out and it was a mad grab for a morsel. Anyway we're planning on a Friday or Saturday so we can stay out for some drinks afterwards so location is important. Price point isn't an issue, but ambience is important - lively, cool, not too bright, loud is ok, good beers a must. Type of cuisine also not too much of an issue, American/French hopefully but Asian/fusion or Italian/ anything else could be interesting. I was thinking Puritan and Co or Catalyst (I love Cambridge but am willing to go elsewhere). We'll have cars with us. Thanks!
