one night in the south end?
looking for a recommendation for three adults meeting up in the South End.
Not looking for overly formal or the bar scene but more for good food enjoyed by three friends out for a rare night together.
What's hot these days in the South End? Which restaurant has the best food consistently?
Thanks for your suggestions
For a small group like your's
I would highly recommend Myers & Chang as it's a fun atmosphere, asian style small plates...just a fun night overall.
Other recommendations would be PICCO (again, casual, fun atmostphere)
Coppa and/or Toro are both amazing, but i'd warn you getting in is sometimes difficult...though Coppa does now take a few reservations over the phone.
second meyers and chang. you can get out far more reasonably, AND more sated, than at toro or coppa.
as for consistently excellent food, i vote hammersley's. you can dine very well on apps there, if that's your fancy, or have a great dinner with wonderful professional service, for about what you'd spend at toro, in a more grown-up environment.
many here like the gallows too, but we had a bad night and have not ventured back.
i never get the picco love on here. meh pizza and ice cream? plus, it's a frequent family destination and that isn't an atmosphere i recommend for a kids-free night out.
i second Toro or Coppa but recommend not going there on a Friday or Saturday night; their qualities are not a secret.
I also vote for Myers + Chang for great food and small plates w/ lots of variety, excellent and creative drinks and a happenin', happy atmosphere. There are a few somewhat recent threads on them w/ lots of recs. If Asian doesn't work for you, we find Aquitaine, classic French bistro, to be very very consistent in quality delicious food and professional and friendly servers, in a handsome comfy bustling room.
