Bachelorette Party Dinner

s

A bunch of us want to take our friend out to dinner for her bachelorette party. She's not much into the club scene so we were thinking a nice dinner at a place she's never been. Open to all areas of the city: North End, Back Bay, Downtown Crossing, etc. Probably be a grou of 10-15. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    We had 18 for my birthday dinner and my friend had a hard time finding a place that would accommodate us without doing some overpriced fixed menu. We ended up at Grotto and they did a great job. Other places that can accommodate a larger group are Stella, Sorellina, Davio's which all have fun bar areas.

      Well, as a North End guy, I'd recommend (for a party that size):

      Taranta
      Lucca
      La Galleria 33
      Prezza
      Mamma Maria's

      There are places I like as much or more, but they're smaller, and it'd be an uncomfortable seating situation. If that doesn't bother you:

      Terramia
      Rabia's
      Carmen
      Marco

        Consider Via Matta. They do a great job with a tasting menu for a large group. And I think they can seat 10-12 at the kitchen table, which I think would be fun.

          We went to Ivy in Downtown Crossing for my cousin's bachelorette party last spring. It was great for a large group because they do small plates that can be shared and the wine list is very reasonable.

            I went to one at Stella in the South End and it was perfect -- lively atmosphere with good energy, great food that appealed to everyone, and not too expensive.

              A shabu-shabu place like Shabu Zen (http://www.shabuzen.com/ ) or Kaze (http://www.kazeshabushabu.com/ ) would be a lot of fun.
