  1. Lots of choices depending on your romance:food quotient.

    L'Espalier is on most folks' list - French food. great ambiance; lots ofmarriage proposals going on.
    Mamma Maria in the North End - there are lots of small rooms with nice views of North Square.
    Other Hounds highly tout Clio but I have not been there yet.
    Lala Rokh on Beacon Hill is a lovely quiet room with very nice Persian food.

    I am sure you will get lots of other great recs. from the folks on this Board.

    1. O-Ya. Perfect place if money really doesn't matter.

        Yes, exactly where I would want to go (though it's not really a 'romantic' room). O Ya first, and second would be the tasting menu at Clio for me.

        Northender's recs are good too - they all fit an anniversary for romantic atmosphere and great food, though I haven't been to them recently.

          Very fair point, Rubee. O-Ya fits the "money no object" criteria but maybe not the romantic part. Of course it could be said that the food at O-Ya is so damn sexy that it ups the overall romance level. Ok, I'm reaching there. Lol.

            Heh-heh. Yep, I'll go with that!

          Even though I recommended the other two because I love them, I should add that No 9 Park is where we usually go every year for our anniversary.

            No. 9 (grudgingly as i love the food, not so much the room)
