where to go for birthday dinner


I'm looking for a good place for dinner in the Boston suburbs, metrowest, preferably. My guests and I are from the Newton/Brookline area and enjoy American food - steaks, chops, chicken, seafood - and Italian cuisine, not too pricey ($$$$), but entrees in the $15.00 to $25.00 range is fine as is a la carte for appetizers, sides, desserts. Parking or valet is a must and we need a place that would accept a reservation for Saturday night for 6 people. Also, a place that is accomodating as I have a hard time with dairy. Any suggestions would be most welome. Thanks!

  1. EVOO on the Somerville/Cambridge line may fit the bill. They have "American Eclectic" type cuisine that usually offers something to everyone. Seating for 6 shouldn't be a problem if you make a reservation. The entrees may be bumping up against the $25 limit but you should be ok. Special orders are ok also. Free parking next door too.

    1. The Blue Room in Kendall Square and DBar in Dorchester could fit your needs.

      1. How about La Morra in Brookline Village?

        1. Thanks for your suggestions, but I was thinking not so much city as out in the burbs, such as Waltham, Wayland, Subbury, Natick, Framingham...... out that way. We've been to La Morra in Brookline; very good, but a little too close to home. I appreciate your quick replies.
