Outdoor celebratory dining

  • 5

It's a friend's birthday on an upcoming Friday night, and I thought it would be fun to enjoy a special meal somewhere outside. Oleana immediately came to mind, as I know they have that beautiful outdoor patio and I've read relatively good reviews lately, even though I've never been. I thought also of Dante, which apparently also has outdoor dining overlooking the Charles...that could be a good idea as well.
Anyone else have any thoughts? Boston/Cambridge area is fine. There will be 4 of us and it certainly should be a nice experience, though we prefer good food in casual surroundings...so...something in btwn lobster in the rough at Barking Crab and L'espalier!!!

Appreciate all suggestions.

  1. The Blue Room? Tremont 647? 33 Restaurant? Eastern Standard?

    1. had lunch at B&G Oyster recently - it was excellent. They have a very cute patio out back.

      1. Coriander in Sharon has outdoor seating, but it's street-side. Still, the food's very good.

        1. Go with your first instinct, especially if you've never been to Oleana.
