Attire for North End Restaurants
My boyfriend and I will be at a Red Sox game earlier in the day and afterwards I want to take him to a great North End dinner. (It's his first time visiting Boston...my home town.)
We won't have time to change before going out to dinner and will most likely be in jeans or khaki shorts and t-shirts. We won't look sloppy persay but certainly won't be dressed up by any stretch of the imagination.
After doing a little research I've come up with going to one of the following (and we are taking all 3 addresses with us in case there is a long wait at one):
*Trattoria il Panino
My question is will we be underdressed or out of place at any of these locations? Any places you would like to add to the list? We are looking for some place that is obviously casual in dress but wonderful in food. We don't really want to go over $40/person for probably appetizer/person and a main course/person. Looking for a traditional and delicious North End experience for my boyfriend.
You really think the three restaurants she mentions care if someone has a t-shirt on? Actually, almost any restaurant these days doesn't care but that's another thread. If I were going straight to dinner, I'd maybe dress it up slightly but coming from a Red Sox game, none of those places will give a toss (not the word I'd usually use). Just don't wear a Dead Kennedys shirt or anything.
Depending upon the heat of the day, I might dress up a bit for Fenway. That could include really comfortable long khakis and a knit shirt with a collar.
You won't feel overdressed for the game. Many other fans are also making a day of it.
This does not answer your original question, but might give you greater flexibility and perhaps better service.
