Beacon Hill tomorrow night?
Hi there - my husband and I are having dinner with a few friends Wednesday night and we were thinking of Beacon Hill to walk around before/after dinner but aren't super familiar with a lot of the options...we know Paramount breakfasts or Fig's pizza but it sort of ends there...
Any ideas? We like all cuisines, would like to stay under $30 per person if possible (w/o wine) and want somewhere we can talk but has an atmosphere...any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
I went a month or so ago to Toscano and I thought it was lovely. Good food, more casual ambience than it used to have and pretty reasonable prices.
Grotto has a lot of fans here, including me. Also, there was a recent thread on the new and improved (?) Tosacano. I think the reviews were mainly positive, but you can do a search.
Toscanos would be a good choice, nice atmosphere, good food and an easy place for conversation. I tried it recently and greatly enjoyed the cheese selection with truffle honey. I do, however, lean more towards 75 Chestnut. It really does have a great neighborhood feel and the food, especially the mussels, is terrific. While I haven't eaten at the Beacon Hill Bistro, I thought the atmosphere was a little cold, I do enjoy their intimate little bar and the food looks good. Maybe someone else can elaborate.
75 Chestnut is a great atmosphere and pretty tasty food. Its ranking as one of my favorites in the area
