Recs for a nice lunch spot - Near Downtown/Common
Hi I'll be in town next week for a conference and I am meeting with a client for lunch. I'd like to take them to a nicer, more formal spot. Can anyone recommend some good places downtown or by the common? That's about the mid-point from our hotels. Italian's about as "ethnic" as I'd like to go since the client's not a particularly adventurous diner.
With Locke Ober no longer open, you might try Mooo in the XB Beacon Hotel or Oceanaire..both close to Downtown Xing and offering very good to excellet food, in a nicer more formal setting.

I thought of both of those. The ground floor with the doors open at BDM is very pleasant.
Check Bina before you go. They've gone to a more limited lunch; just pickup a sandwich and bring it to bar or outside. Currently no waiter service. This might change as the weather improves but they just weren't doing enough biz to run a full lunch.
I'd also consider Radius, Woodward and Sel de la Terre as options in the financial district (downtown).

Silvertone has good comfort-food type fare. I'm pretty sure they are open for lunch.
