Andover Ma area, sunday evening

We are looking to take the boss out to dinner in the Andover Ma area.
Doesn't have to be right in Andover, but somewhere within a 20 min drive or so. We really need to impress and are looking for steakhouses, italian, or anything else really good! Been to Burtons a few months ago, will go again but looking for someplace comparable. Please help it's tomorrow night!

  1. What about Glory? I was there a while ago, but I continue to hear good things.

    1. Haven't been in a year or so, but the Andover Inn would impress my boss.

        I was at the Andover Inn about two weeks ago and was incredibly disappointed. The room was nice but it ended there. There was an amuse of foie gras and eggplant, it was about as good as it sounds (that is, there is no earthly reason for that combination), and the meal just went downhill from there. French onion soup was watery, steak was not tasty, sides were bleagh, service was okay. I'd sooner go to the 99 or Picadilly Pub.

        If you really step on it you can be in Boston in 20 minutes from Andover.

      2. Gavens in Middleton may fit the bill.

        1. Vincenzo's on Main St is upscale Italian in an attractive room.

            I hear it's for sale so make sure before you go that there isn't something new there.

          2. Thanks for the tip on The Andover Inn, it used to be really good.
            Too bad.
