Childless for a few hours on a Sat night, want to make a quick trip into the city for dinner (Boston, Cambridge, Somerville). Looking to sit at the bar so we don't need to make a reservation, have cocktails, an app and entree each or a number of small plates, in a loud, lively atmosphere with good people watching. Love Toro, but afraid that we will not have enough time to eat there since it is usually totally packed. Don't want to spend more than $150 for drinks and food for two. Haven't been in the city to eat for a while and am totally out of the loop on new places. Will eat any type of food. Any suggestions or direction? Many thanks.
