boston dinner with 10 teenagers

My 16 year-old daughter wants to take ten of her nearest and dearest to Boston for dinner. (Aren't I the Mother-of-the-Year?!) They are pretty sophisticated eaters. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

  1. Sophisticated eaters maybe, but still teenagers... I'd do the Cheesecake Factory at the Pru

      No, they eat lunch there all the time -- way too pedestrian! They want to dress up and be cool for the night....

      Thanks for trying, though!

        I'd say that part of it depends on what you want to spend. If you're keeping it reasonable, and want a cool vibe, you could try Silvertone's. If you want something a bit grander and "fun", with a French bistro vibe, I'd recommend Brasserie Joe.

    2. invite some more people and rent out the Lava Lounge at East Coast Grill

        No need to "rent [it] out." You can reserve a table in the Lava Lounge for free! (I've done so with groups of around 12 on several occasions.) Great suggestion.

      2. I'd recommend Houston's - fun vibe, good but not daring food, nice part of town for teens.

        1. why not great tapas at Dali in Somerville - love that place, they'll get a kick out of the decor. Also, something different would be Tangerino (charlestown) for belly dancing and dinner. One of my favorite dinners in Boston was at Sibling Rivelry - very kewl menu and upbeat place. Have fun.

          1. Eastern Standard might work. Though if they are somewhat sophisticated, you might want to give Bina a try, It is a very cool space (they have a small provate room/space as well), trendy music and good food. Chic crowd as well.
