Birthday Dinner for 18-Year Old Guest
We are taking my son and his girlfriend out for her 18th birthday this Sunday evening. We have tickets to STOMP, so we will be in the theater district area. She's not a fan of seafood. We want to keep it somewhat casual, not too expensive, but special nonetheless. Any suggestions?
I would suggest Eastern Standard on Comm Ave adjacent to the Commonwealth Bay Hotel. Very nice atmosphere and a wide variety of choices that should please everyone. The prices are mid range for Boston. I also like Petit Robert Bistro also on Comm Ave and and not far from Eastern Standard. It is a nice little French Bistro with good food. Both places are on the ":in-bound side" of Comm Ave right near Kenmore Sq.

I'd recommend Teatro, though it looks like prices have inched up a bit since I was last there.
A couple of ideas to toss into the mix, depending what kind of an atmosphere you're in the mood for and just how expensive you want to make it. For something louder and scenier, you could try Via Matta or Teatro (with Teatro being the quieter of those two). More intimate, sort of tucked away, and a bit pricier (maybe too pricey for this occasion?) are Troquet and Spire. Not sure which theater the show's at but none of these should be more than a 5 or 10 minute walk.
