We are going to see a show at BPC and would like to have a nice dinner right before the show. I've been looking at Petit Robert Bistro and Orinoco (I know, two different cuisines and two different directions). I was curious if anyone had other recommnedations for that area.

And as much as I would love to try Grezzo, my fellow diners will not be interested.

Thanks CHs.

    We went to Island Hopper before a BPC show last week and had a satisfying meal. Pan-Asian cuisine with a focus on Malaysian dishes (I had some tasty noodles), the price is right. There are several positive prior posts on this board.

      How about Trattoria Toscana in the Fenway? Great food, reasonable, and walking distance to BPC. Make sure there is no Red Sox home game that night.

        You've also got Eastern Standard in Kenmore, which recently started taking reservations.

        In Back Bay, La Voile no longer appears to be batting 1000 on the board, but I really enjoyed my pre-Symphony dinner there in the early spring.

          I'll throw out Sonsie, it's been a while since I've mentioned them. And Brasserie Jo is having all those 10 year anniv. specials this month. Hemingway's (sp?) for casual and nice pizza.
