60th birthday gathering in Boston

CT13 Nov 17, 2009 11:20 AM

We are putting together a 60th birthday gathering in boston and would like some recommendaitons. We will be staying in the south end on the waterfront but are comfortable getting around boston so the restaurant does not have to be in the south end, there are 6 of us, and we would like something not trendy, warm inviting, not rushed or loud, but not romantic and excellent food. The birthday girl usually orders salmon out and is not into thick sauces but prefers fresh veggies. Wine selection is a must. I would prefer to stay under 35 dollars an entree but depending on the place and recommendation would consider going higher. Any help anyone can provide would be fantastic! Thanks again!!

    The Southend is not on the waterfront, but South Boston is - different neighborhoods. Also makes a difference which days you'll be here, as there are some good 3-course Sunday evening prix fixe dinner deals.

        I think Hamersley's Bistro actually in the South End would be a good place for someone who likes good but simple(ish) food. Maybe also Sel de la Terre closer to your hotel. Or Meritage in the Boston Harbor Hotel which has a view.

        Hamersley's Bistro
        553 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02116

        Meritage Restaurant
        70 Rowes Wharf, Boston, MA 02110

          Taranta(Italian w/Peruvian twist) in the Italian Northend would meet your price point, has salmon on the menu and has a beer & wine license. If you go, ask for a table on the 2nd floor: http://www.tarantarist.com/v5/index.html. You could then stroll around the NE for pastries.
