Friday evening business dinner near Ritz-Carlton Boston Commons

JRBlack Sep 27, 2007 07:37 AM

Looking for suggestions for a place for a business dinner for a group of 6 or so. Doesn't need to be walking distance from the Ritz-Carlton, but don't want too long a trip, either. Looking for something somewhat upscale, ethnic or Continental/eclectic/New American all okay. Just don't want someplace too noisy for conversation. For frame of reference, last year we took more or less the same group to Excelsior. Thanks!

      Maybe blu in the Ritz Carlton Residences? I haven't been there in a little while but last time I was there with a group of clients it was fantastic and the noise level was not bad at all

        Via Matta for upscale Italian cuisine.

          I love the food at Via Matta, but that dining room can be LOUD. If it's not a weekend night, it should be okay. I find that on a date, I welcome the loudness because it actually provides for more privacy at your table, but the noise could be tough for a group.

          For a business dinner I'd probably go for No. 9 Park.

            Thanks for all the tips, Bostonians, especially about the noise level at Via Matta. That knocks it off the list.
