Date Night Next Weekend - Help Us Choose?

Swankalicious May 4, 2012 05:53 PM

Mr. Swank and I have secured a Mary Poppins for a blissful night out sans small swanks. Saturday night, to be exact.
We'd like to try a newish place that we haven't yet enjoyed -- we do dine out a fair bit. Where would you go on a Saturday night without children, Hounds? Boston, Somerville, and Cambridge are all in play. We've been to Bondir.

    my very predictable response from all previous posts is Oleana. That's where we'd go in a flash had we a chance. Evoo?

      yep, Oleana. After that: Island Creek Oyster Bar, Strip T's, Evoo, Erbaluce, Troquet.

        i've had very good food at evoo, but it can be very noisy.

        what kinda vibe are you seeking? grown-up and romantic? or just kinda busy and buzzing?

        i'll add journeyman and bergamot to the list above.
