help with rec. for birthday dinner

nlch Oct 16, 2008 04:55 AM

My parents are coming to town for my dad's birthday--had intended to take him to Boka but they are closed for a private party that day. Should be something that has a decent amount of seafood or vegetarian, not too loud, maybe new in the last year or so? I've searched the threads but am a little confused about pricing--our budget doesn't stretch to Alinea, etc. Neighborhood not imp. Any thoughts?

    If you've never been to North Pond, that would be an excellent choice, based on the criteria you've stated. The setting in the park is perfect for a special occasion, and the food is excellent, featuring local and seasonal ingredients, including multiple seafood and vegetarian options. www.northpondrestaurant.com
