Where in Boston to Propose?
A friend of mine who is visiting Boston in a week plans to propose to his girlfriend. He asked me the best places for him to propose and which restaurants are a must to visit while in Boston.
When we ate at L'espalier the fellow at the next table got on his knees and proposed to his date. It was particularly of note to us as we were there for our 25th anniversary.
Locke-Ober is a beautiful room with great food. As ur-Boston as Delmonico's and 21 used to be ur-Manhattan.
Does he want to propose at the restaurant, or propose, then go to a restaurant? If it's the former, I'd say any of the suggestions here are good, plus perhaps the Barker Tavern in Scituate, Five North Square in the North End, or Trattoria Pulcinella in Cambridge.
If it's the latter, Plum Island, the Old North Bridge in Concord, and the Arnold Arboretum are all good places, I think, depending on the weather of course! (Today would be perfect!)
