Looking for a great place for a business dinner. Preferably off of 495 between Franklin and Bridgewater. Suggestions?

    maybe the Col Blackinton Inn in Attleboro? I've never had a bad meal and it's very pretty, inside & out.

    Never been but Trattoria di Nonna in Mansfield? Just throwing ideas out, as I don't think there's a lot of choose from in the area.

      I was hoping you would reply! I'm thinking they may be better off going down to Providence. Have you been to 3 in Franklin recently? What about Vintage in Woonsocket for a business dinner?

        Vintage would be excellent for a business dinner - can get loud later on Fri & Sat nights (music in the lounge) I haven't been to 3 but apparently it's crazy loud? If Franklin is a possibility, I continue to have great luck and excellent service at Incontro (I know the board sees it otherwise). If Woonsocket isn't out of the loop, Gian Carlo's is also excellent.

          Thanks Jane. I sent them to Vintage. They went last night. The report back was good. They were happy with the food and dining room. All in all a success. Thanks for helping me brainstorm ideas.

            Excellent!

            Have you tried Rocco's in Smithfield yet? High(er) end Italian from what I understand, in the old Ron's Spaghetti House bldg on 116. No website that I can find, and nothing on here.

              No I haven't been yet. Talked to a bartender who interviewed but didn't get a job there but haven't heard anything else. I'll post back if/when I do go.

                  Sean, have you been? Some friends went, LOVED IT, then gave it two more tries and said they hated it. I haven't been yet.

                    I just learned of the place today while driving by. The menu sounds exciting, I hope to try it soon.

                      I sent it to a friend and we're going to try to meet for lunch.
