Once a month, I like to meet a friend after dinner for some conversation and refreshment. It could be coffeee, dessert, whatever. We just want a nice place to sit and talk for an hour. But so few places are open after 8:00!
I live in Belmont, she's in Lexington.
Tonight she'll be coming from Harvard Square, so a place in or near Belmont would be best. We often resort to Brigham's but would prefer not to.
