Blind Date Lunch venue?

  • b

Any tips on good spots for a first date over lunch in the Back Bay/South End area? I'm less concerned about $$ and more about not going to a place that is too noisy or one that is too high on snob-factor.

  1. What about the White Star Tavern? It's got both a downstairs and upstairs and a good choice of items. That big new Asian place on Mass Ave. is roomy. Vox Populi is fairly quiet when the bar scene's not in full swing. I'm trying Barcode again tonite I think, I'll let you know how it is.

      Claremont Cafe is small and intimate and kind of cool. Nice but not threatening
