Suggestions for Graduation weekend

Hi All,

My daughter will be graduating college on May 18th. Will be in Boston May 16th through 19th. Will be a party of 7 to 8 for those days. Looking for suggestion on where to go. We are looking for moderate to expensive food with great service and atmosphere.

    1. re: Taralli

      Italian and seafood would be best

    2. check out these places

      8 High St, Boston, MA 02129

      Sasso Restaurant
      116 Huntington Avenue, Boston, MA 02116

      1. You may want to consider Taranta, on Hanover Street in the North End. It's a tasty Italian-Peruvian fusion restaurant, which would satisfy cravings for both seafood and Italian cuisine. It's not cheap, but not unreasonable for the area, and you can even reserve a private room if you so desire.

          Thanks, for suggestion but been to Taranta. Would like to try something else. Need more suggestion.

        2. There is Prezza in the North End, by far my favorite. Also for a group of 7 or 8 Mamma Maria (also in the North End, overlooking North Square) has private dining if you are looking for an intimate setting.

          The prices are comparable to other recs on the board already such as Sasso and Radius.

          Out of the North End there is Davios, near Park Plaza, which is a Northern Italian Restaurant. They do Italian great, but also have a good selection of steaks and seafood.
