Nice, Foodie Quality Lunch near Colonial Theater - Reservations a Plus?!

We are going with some good friends to see Hair at the Colonial Theater (106 Boylston Street, Boston, MA) this weekend and want to meet them for a nice lunch beforehand. The hope was that this could be a slightly nicer occasion in a place with good food that takes reservations. All the nice places in the area I know (Avilla, Bin Osteria, Teatro) are not open for Saturday lunch. It need not be super fancy, but just not crappy...someplace we can linger for an hour+ and catch up and eat great food and make our friends feel like it was worth investing in a baby sitter for one of their few child free jaunts into the city.

Any suggestions on where we can go?

  1. How about Q restaurant for some hot pot.

    1. Maybe Market? They are on Opentable and have reservations available for Saturday lunch. Or for less fancy but good food, Montien.

      Having seen the show, a cocktail with lunch would not be out of line :).

          I've done Saturday lunch at Market. It was quiet but not dead, a nice time to focus on the quality of the food and the professionalism of the service.
