Advice needed for a special dinner, probably North End-ish
I am getting together with my 2 best friends from college [we graduated 20+ years ago and are still friends but see each other only once or twice a year] and staying overnight in Boston, probably at the Hilton in the Financial District, partially b/c it's near the North End. I've got a bunch of possible restaurants for our dinner bouncing around in my head and I've looked at so many menus that I can't remember which was which, and I thought maybe you lovely people could at least narrow it down for me. Two of us are pretty adventurous, one not as much but not terrible either. Would like to be able to hear each other talk but doesn't have to be super quiet. We want to be able to make a reservation and not waste our precious time together waiting for a table. Here's what I'm thinking so far: [and am open to other suggestions as well]
Sel de la Terre
Trattoria di Monica
Of these I have only been to Prezza and Sel de la Terre, and it's been ages since I've been to either. Would love any and all advice...thanks in advance!
