50th Birthday Dinner?

Dear All,

I will be in Boston attending a conference next weekend (10/25-10/28) which also happens to be my 50th birthday. I would really appreciate suggestions for an incredible restaurant where I can treat myself to a wonderful dinner. I am a "foodie" who appreciates incredible food. I will be staying in the Copley Square area.

Since I will be dining by myself, I would appreciate suggestions in safe destinations reachable by cab. Any sort of cuisine is terrific as long the execution is flawless. Thank you for your replies in advance! I appreciate your help.

      I am from Cleveland, Ohio -- a great restaurant town. Any type of cuisine is fine, price is not an object as long as it is good.

      Recommendations are really appreciated. Thanks.

    2. If price is no object, the first restaurant that comes to mind is O Ya, especially since it is good for a solo diner as much of it is bar seating.

      1. I think you'd be very happy at O Ya, a great spot for going solo, but for me the definitive choice for such a celebration would be Menton... even better, do both!

        1. When dining alone I like the bar at capital grille. Last night while waiting for someone I sat at the tamo bar at the seaport hotel. Off the bar there's a room with the best flat screen which I have seen.
          In the north end coffee at the cafe vittoria is a must whether alone or with someone.

          1. Try Post390. We had a fabulous meal there a couple weeks ago -- -Back Bay area.
