  1. Depends what you're looking for. The list of what you've tried indicates you like creative American and are not on a tight budget, so I'd suggest Craigie on Main or Troquet.

    140 Boylston Street, Boston, MA 02116

    Craigie on Main
    853 Main Street, Cambridge, MA 02139

    1. I am no expert on what the best restaurants are in Boston, but I take it you are a chef. You might search this board and see if there are posts that recommend restaurants to you chefs from out of town. A couple of names of high end restaurants do occur to me but I haven't been to all of them: "Market" at the W Hotel (don't mix up with a different Market that is also in downtown Boston), O Ya (cool sushi place in the Leather District), Toro, Sorrellina, Oleanna in Cambridge, also in Cambridge I really like Upstairs on the Square. Just a few ideas to start with.

      1. Troquet is a great suggestion. I like the wine pours of either 2 or 4oz. Staff is knowledgeable and while the service is wonderful it's not at all pretentious. They also have the dessert area on the first floor which I have yet to try. I have a hard time picking just one place, so I would also suggest 75 Chestnut for a neighborhood feel and their porterhouse pork chop.

        1. I am only going to one restaurant this weekend, and that's Rendezvous.
