Expense account restaurant in Boston for three women
I will be with two of my work colleagues (all in our thirties) for a work conference in Boston this week, and our boss gave us the go ahead for a nice dinner for Tuesday night (rare at my company!). Can anyone recommend a suitable spot with the following criteria i) excellent food, lovacore-style a bonus ii) Back Bay area or up to 15 minute can ride away iii) no italian, sushi or asian, iv) must have great local seafood, though doesn't have to be a seafood restaurant and finally v) a fun, lively and non-stuffy atmosphere so we can relax-- we're all friends, so it's not really a "business" dinner. I was looking at B&G Oyster-- would this suit us, and any other recs?
If you don't mind venturing to Cambridge, Craigie on Main fits exactly what you described. I haven't been to B&G but it gets great reviews on the board. I'd also recommend Neptune Oyster if you don't mind not being able to make a reservation.
B&G is great and on an expense account could be really great. You could also check out Scampo -- very scene and be seen place and delicious expensive food. You wont get reservations but could belly up to the bar where it all seems to be happening anyway. Have fun!
