cool lounge/restaurant in Cambridge/Boston/Waltham?

I'm looking for somewhere fun to take my boyfriend out for dinner/drinks tonight; good food is important but atmosphere is key. Cuchi Cuchi is a good example of the type of place I have in mind, but I'm looking for other suggestions. Thanks!

  1. I have never been to cuchi cuchi, so I don't know what I'm comparing to. The only "coolish" place I can think of in Waltham, is Solea.

    1. for great drinks and decent food there's always Eastern Standard (more brasserie than lounge, but still fun)...Bond at the Langham has cool atmosphere although the food/drinks are not particularly memorable

      1. Biagio in Waltham has an upstairs lounge w/ a bar and couches and low lighting - very modern and chic looking. I've only eaten downstairs, but wandered upstairs out of curiousity my last time there and ever since have wanted to check it out on a Fri or Sat night.

        1. I have never been to the place you mention, but Tempo in waltham is a cool place. Has a good decor, great drinks, and food is very good.

          1. Om in Harvard Square has a nice loungy bar on its first floor for drinks(careful, this has sound):
