Looking for a special dinner on a Sunday evening after graduation, in Somerville, Cambridge or Boston. Excellent food and atmosphere desired, but not overly formal as I would imagine L'espalier or Aujourd'hui to be. We liked EVOO, but they're closed on Sundays, as is No.9 Park. What's your top picks for an evening like that?
Could try Oleana, Rendezvous, Blue Room, Gargoyle's - all on the EVOO side of the river -
New place opened on May 10 - http://www.twfoodrestaurant.com/ - has an interesting looking menu - higher end French like L'espalier and A'hui but it's in Huron Village so I would think a little more relaxed...but that's just a guess.
How about Eastern Standard or Petit Robert Bistro in Kenmore Square? Sel de la Terre might be nice too.
