Ladies Dinner Spot - 30th Birthday. Help!
So my roommate is turning 30 and we are going to dinner on Tuesday for her birthday. We tried to make reservations at Scampo, and due to their terrible costumer service, we will not be dining there. I come to you for suggestions
1) Kind of fancy/hip so we can dress up and not look out of place but not a stuffy "old" atmosphere
2) Vegetarian and Gluten Free Options
3) i would say under 30 for entrees
215 Charles Street, Boston, MA 02114
Myers and Chang has a gluten free and vegetarian menu. A lot of small plates you can share and lively atmosphere.
I think Myers+Chang has the most extensive gluten-free menu in town (I gave it a Stuff Magazine Dining Award this year for that), and excellent vegetarian options, but the crowd there is pretty casual. If you don't mind being the only dressed-up ones in the room, I think it's a great option, certainly lively and hip. It's small plates and a handful of larger dishes. You can check out all their menus online: http://www.myersandchang.com/index.ph...
I don't know about the veg & gluten free, but the food at 28 Degrees is good as are the drinks, and it's fun and the right vibe.
What about the one that was Banq & is now something else? Or Diva Lounge in Davis Square?
The other place I can think of with that kind of atmosphere is OM in Harvard Square. I wouldn't go there specifically for the food (the drinks are nice), but it does have the feel.
