30th Birthday dinner

  • 8

I am looking for a special restaurant to take my son for his 30th birthday. He appreciates great food and is an excellent cook himself. The restaurant should have a fun atmosphere. All suggestions appreciated.

  1. do you have any specific neighborhoods and/or price range in mind?

    1. Any place in the Boston metropolitan area. Price is not an issue.

      1. Hmmm...I spent my 30th at Sorrellina & it was fantastic! I would call the atmosphere more sophisticated than "fun" however. I would also recommend Taranta in the North End --every time I have been there the food has been exceptional and it is upscale without being stuffy. It is Italian & Peruvian fusion.

        1. How 'bout Eastern Standard?

          1. My son is 30 too, also is a great cook, has been in the restaurant industry in Boston (little) but mostly in Seattle and just moved to Paris (to pursue dreams of private dinner parties). Loves the restaurant/dining scene and we had a blast when he was in town with his girlfriend at Sibling Rivalry. He loved the concept from menu perspective - food was fabulous. Check out the menu - very kewl concept.

            1. My husband and I have been to Sibling Rivalry and Eastern Standard and thought that they would be fun places to take our children. I am thinking of someplace with a different standard of cuisine. I have never been to Sorrelina.

              1. Aneka Rasa -- especially the chicken satay, steamed tilapia with sambal, oyster omellette. Will be an opportunity to sample flavours that are "off the beaten path" in this country.

                1. Thanks. I have not heard of the restaurant.
