Expensive Business Dinner Recs?

gansu girl Sep 16, 2007 06:40 PM

My husband has been tasked with organizing a business dinner for his boss and some business partners. The other guys are paying so price is no object ;) Looking for a delicous, classy meal - only catch is that the boss isnt an adventurous eater. They've been to all the steak houses with perhaps the exeception of Ken Oringer's KO Prime. What places come to mind?

      Isit a working business meeting where privacy in conversation set the tone, or is it a formality of dining together. Some options, although noise might factor in
      safe bet would be
      Locke Ober

        This sounds like the classic event for Locke-Ober. Book a private room on the third floor.

        Other possibilities: Radius and Sel de la Terre.

          Meritage in the Boston Harbor Hotel is great for this sort of thing but might be too adventurous, although there are lots of options. Excelsior is another good power spot up there with Mistral, etc. but less noisy.

            No.9 park - def
            mistral - may be too trendy, noisy
            excelsior - good setting but food okay
            Aujourd'hui - french

              Troquet (if you're feeling slightly adventurous)... or I'd second Locke-Ober.
