No. 9 or Beacon Hill Bistro for holiday lunch?
I'm taking a friend for a holiday lunch & girls day out. My vision is of a walk through the Public Gardens, then arriving to a super cozy lunch.
Any experiences with lunch at No 9 or BHB?
Food is important, but atmosphere is almost more so.
I like the idea of a fireplace at BHB, but of course, it's hard to trump Barbara.
Hi there! I actually just went to lunch at No 9 last week- and I have to agree-its tough to trump Barbara. Aside from two small issues with over salting (the calamari and the bone marrow) the entire 6 course tasting menu was absolutely incredible, and service was impeccable. Im trying to justify another "indulgence" before the holidays are over!
I'd strongly recommend #9 over BHB. Stop for a cup of coffe or drink after lunch at BHB.
Here's an old post from #9 lunch but we've had many similar since...just first I found. Somewhere out there is a lunch that began at noon and ended at 10PM..:)
eta...found another report.
BHB and #9 aren't really in the same league and a nice lunch at #9 is a great way for friends to enjoy an afternoon
