Boston College Parents Weekend
Have reservations at Eastern Standard Sat night but just realized there is a Sox game - am I making a mistake, is it going to be pretty wild? Going with BC son and his girlfriend and some members of her family who we don't know, ES seems like a great choice because it seems to have a really broad menu, some of the group are rather fussy eaters, but I don't want to dine at the zoo either! If not there, any good suggestions for that sort of group in Brookline/Newton?
If you want to avoid going into Boston there are a few choices:
The Metropolitan Club on Route 9-a Modern steakhouse with some nice comfort food choices as well as some nice seafood. A little pricey but nice room, relatively quiet and great service.
Bernard's:upscale, yummy but not authentic chinese food in the Chestnut Hill MAll.
Kouzina- a small restaurant in Newton/Waban- on Beacon street. Owners are Greek and French- a nice twist. Very cozy but if you call ahead for a reservation they will put together a big table for you. Their dessert tray- which has all of their desserts on a huge platter for $28 is really great and fun.
Aquitaine Bis- Across from the Met Club- has a cousin restuarant in the south end. Nice.
