Top line food in a fun atmosphere?

FEDup | Jan 29, 2012 07:02 PM

A friend is visiting from Toronto and we're hoping to have a great dinner out, fun atmosphere but fantastic food. We will be spending around $125/pp but would be willing to spend a bit more with wine and tip. I'm looking for top of the line food, talk about it the next few days food but nothing too formal and old fashioned.

We would be open to any style of food, aside from sushi/Japanese (otherwise I would be going to O Ya) and want something more interesting than a great steak. Within easy cab/walking/transit distance of Back Bay given our love of cocktails and wine.

I was looking at Aquitane, Menton's prix fixe, Erbaluce but hard to tell pricing and although we've eaten there before we loved Island Creek Oyster Bar and would consider going back. Neptune's is on my list to try but I'm worried about waiting outside in a line in the winter. Will they take your number and call when the table is available?

Many thanks!
