Daughter's 19th Birthday Dinner
I'll be in Boston in a few weeks to celebrate my daughter's 19th birthday, along with my 16 year old daughter. We'll be staying in the Copley area. I am looking for restaurant recs in that area, or convenient to the T. Any type of food is fine, except my daughter doesn't care for French bistro type places. Not too worried about price, but would like someplace upscale that is fun and lively, but with good food (we've raised our kids to be foodies).
I go to Northeastern University and there is a great little place called Woody's Grill and Tap that is nearby- within walking distance to Copley. It's maybe not a true "special occasion" place but the pizza is great (meaning brick-oven gourmet style), the desserts are really good, the atmosphere is comfortable (family-safe but still fun) and it's reasonably priced...plus there is hardly a wait except during red sox season. I'd go there with my fam.
Hamersley's is a reasonable walk or a very short cab ride from Copley. Don't be dissuaded by the word "bistro" in the restaurant name: this is a fine dining room, though fairly relaxed. Do a search, there's plenty here about this place.
Or try No 9 Park, for a place that feels more special occasiony (Park St T top).
