Romantic Dinner on Newbury St
So I'm looking to impress my girlfriend this saturday night by taking her out to a nice dinner. When I asked her where she wanted to go, she said, "Anywhere on Newbury St."
I'm gonna have roughly $125 for the two of us, so I'm assuming anywhere we go would fall into that price range. Ideally, the place would either be French or Italian.
My first instinct is to say that there are much better restaurants if you stay away from Newbury St. I personally would go somewhere else and you can always go for a stroll along Newbury after. I haven't been to La Voile in quite some time but if you must stick with Newbury St, I suppose that's one of the best options.
La Voile, 259 Newbury St, which is the north side between Fairfield and Gloucester.
Rustic provencal French, but in a romantic, quaint restaurant with authentic (literally just-off-the-boat) French waitstaff.
Appetizers are $9-$20, main courses are $19-$35. Great wine list, with plenty of good bottles that will keep you within your price range.
I really like La Voile, and you are in luck with your decision, since there isn't much else (if anything) of note on Newbury.
For mains, I recommend the sole meuniere and the sweetbreads.
Whatever you do, enjoy your evening.
