cool scene w/ great food/wine on Thursday night

A friend of mine and I are hoping to find a last minute recommendation for a cool scene with great food and wine for tomorrow night. Not a bank breaker but does not need to be inexpensive either. Last minute overnight to Boston and she's had a very tough week so I'm seeking a memorable experience. Thanks!

    My sincere thanks for all your replies.

    We're off to Oleanna and then over to Davio's for drinks.

    Love this site.

      Couple other suggestions -

      Via Matta - cool scene, very good food, excellent bartending.

      How about Dante in Cambridge? I am thinking a nice view of the city would be relaxing and memorable. Does the dining room have a great view?

      Gotta say that if scene's what you're after, No. 9 Park bar may be a very good choice.

      What about Radius? That's got a high scene index too, no?

      Now if you want a real scene, hit the Hong Kong after. ;)

        My first thought was the bar at Davio's - I love the atmosphere there and the food and wine are both excellent.

        If you are closer to Cambridge then try Oleanna - either the dining room or the bar.

        The bar at No. 9 park is great and you will get excellent service.

          I would go for the tasting menu at EVOO - very reasonable, and the wine pairing is good, too! The place is classy yet very relaxed and friendly.

            I understand that Douzo is the place for scene and good food. Don't know about the wine situation, but that's where I'd head.

              Maybe Les Zygomates?

              Live music, good wine and food

                try Troquet for dinner:

                then Gypsy Bar for after dinner drinks and whatnot:

                both are right on the common and very cool. itz a very short walk from one to the other.
