Phantom Gourmet gift card. Where would you go?

This is a branch off my post of a few days ago asking for information about Sky in Sudbury. The link to the PG list of venues elicited some valuable feedback and so I'm restructuring the question. If you had $100 on a Phantom card, where would you go? A big, fat, purple thanks to you all.

  1. Just checked out the list and I would say Mamma Maria's in the North End is probably the best restaurant on the list. Tresca in the North End is also very nice. If it were me, I would go to Mamma Maria's.

    1. There are actually some decent options on the list, and more than a few clunkers. If it was me trying to decide, I think I'd go somewhere completely different, reasoning that it's not coming out of MY pocket if it misses the mark. I'd also think about location, so some of the more attractive options for me would be OM or Sandrines in Cambridge, Tango in Arlington, or even the Midwest Grill. Have fun!

      1. I'd say Vinny's at Night and Il Capriccio would be good choices, too. Probably the former with 100 bucks.

          Lot of clunkers, but these are my favorites.

            Oh, I missed Ithaki. I really enjoy that place. Who's been to Om since the new chef has arrived? I was unimpressed with their online photo portfolio. (bostonchefs)
