Wanted: trendy yummy fun and flirty...

My boyfriend and I are through and through foodies, and also love a great wine list! We are going on a special date wednesday night and are looking for a place to spend lots of time talking flirting eating and drinking, maybe move from dining room to bar as night progresses... We are 25 years old but not into college bars. We live north shore and will be traveling by car..... wld love some help!

  1. You could start off with dinner in the Zebra Room at Upstairs on the Square, and then move into their Monday Club Bar for drinks afterward.

    1. Maybe the bar at Uni/Clio. Fun/trendy is the Eastern Standard bar (doing a special of 8 roses for $8 right now) and Gargoyle's, a little flirty. Central Kitchen? Toro?

      1. Flirty I'm not such an expert on, but for (very) yummy and fun, you might try Central Kitchen with a move to the Enormous Room upstairs after you've eaten.

          Central Kitchen was my first response, too - my husband & I went for an afterdinner drink this past Sunday and it's a great, low key bar.

          My other suggestion would be Dali in Somerville for tapas (can't get more flirty at mealtime than sharing plates, IMO!) and nearby is EVOO for another drink, or Toscanini's for ice cream...

        2. Sounds like you might enjoy Cuchi Cuchi on Main St. in Cambridge. Great expensive drinks. Not so much a college atmosphere joint. Tapas.

            Several great recommendations -- I think Cuchi Cuchi is definitely the most flirtatious of the bunch -- and with the most excellent white sangria and pretty good food.

          2. Cuchi Cuchi is a very good recommendation... so I'll second it! Drinks really are expensive, but they're excellent. The food is tapas-style. Also expensive, but also excellent. The atmosphere, though, is the star... definitely good for a fun, romantic night out with yr sig oth.

            Plus, you can move to Toscanini's for sundaes afterward! But maybe that's just MY idea of a date night.... ;)
