Seeking a good food/ non-Asian venue for graduation dinner for 8 to 10 people...$35 per person not including alcohol...this is for (of course) a Saturday night in late May and since we are not from Boston this has proven challenging...any help is appreciated!

    $35 / pp is casting the net a bit wide - any other preferences?

      Seafood, gastropub, mediterranean, mexican all good...looking for casual and relaxed...good beer list would be nice for the beer-centric graduate, interesting/well priced international wine list a plus...cambridge, medford, boston, charlestown all ok...thanks!

        Interesting wine list and casual may be a tough combo - but might consider Highland Kitchen or East Coast Grill.

          Russell House Tavern in Harvard Square? Gran Gusto on Sherman in Cambridge? Blue Room in Kendall?

          Are you thinking $35 for 3 courses? or 2 courses? There are nearly infinite options if $10 app and $25 entree is acceptable.

            figuring we'll order 3 or 4 apps for the table, everyone gets own entree and then a couple of desserts for the table...Have been to Russell House ad love it....good suggestion. Been to Blue Room for brunch...liked it but wonder if they can handle a large group at dinner? will explore...thanks

        I would recommend checking out posto in davis. Great small plates an pizza and easily fits your budget before alchohol.
