Seafood/Asian/Romantic Dinner Near MIT/Central Square

jenniferdines Mar 10, 2012 10:18 AM

Going to an event at 7 pm near MIT/Central Square, and we are hoping to have an early dinner around 5:30 pm.

Sadly had to cancel at Myers + Chang in the South End due to the timing of the event we are attending :( :( :(

I like spice, seafood, and something a little romantic! Thanks for your help!

    not asian, but i like the spaces and food very much at rendez-vous, central kitchen, hungry mother and blue room. since you'll be dining early all those spots will still be very quiet.

      All great recommendations. Rendezvous has great seafood options.

      although neither seafood/spicy/Asian, Salts could be considered on the romantic side-- try the tableside carved duck for 2. http://stuffboston.com/feed/archive/2...
      If you got in when they open at 6pm and ordered right away, since they're near MIT/Central, might work for your timing. you might even try calling them ahead of time and explaining your situation, they might be able to get a head start on your order before you arrive.

        Not far - East by Northeast on Cambridge St (maybe a 10 minute drive?) - innovative Asian and, in it's own quiet way, romantic.
