Bachelorette Party Dinner
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):
La Galleria 33
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:
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.
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.
