Upscale Dining in Back Bay?

chasesmama | Oct 20, 2008 12:45 PM

I am surprising my husband with an anniversary trip to Boston this weekend (we're from Southern California), and am trying to find a nice dining experience for us on Friday night. I've heard sooooooooo many mixed reviews about places. We are staying at the Eliot Hotel and I've heard good things about Clio? I've also heard about Aujourd 'hui and some others. I don't want to make a mistake and spend one of our precious evenings at a place with poor service or average food when I'm willing to spend good money. My husband isn't a very adventurous eater, so more traditional meals with a twist would be our style. Any suggestions? Also, what is the deal with the Morton's in Back Bay? I've heard sooooooo many negatives about it, but was really wanting to go there another evening. Thanks!
