Venue for a 40th birthday?
My husband turns 40 next week and I would love to take him out to a wonderful dinner (pricey OK). Some places we have tried and enjoyed in the past:
The Hungry I (on Charles St)
La Campania (in Waltham)
Rialto (in the Charles Hotel)
[pricey place on Gloucester St. in Boston but name escapes me]
The place you're thinking of on Gloucester is L'Espalier. I just had a great meal at Seasons in the Millenium hotel. I had a nice meal at the Top of the Hub a couple years ago and you can't beat that view. Bay Tower Room is good for that too. Aujourd'hui in the Four Seasons is a favorite of people altho I prefer the Bristol Lounge. I love that room. Il Capriccio in Waltham is great. Those are a few that come to mind.
