Where to sup after a movie at the Lexington cinema?

Mr. Swank and I have a date night coming up, and we're taking in a flick at the Lexington cinema. Where should we go afterward? I'm considering the new Vine Brook Tavern, though I'm not sure how good it is -- and it's new. We'd like to avail ourselves of something luscious, since the Grandparents Swank are on babysitting duty. Ideas? Thank you!!

    I've heard great things about Vine Brook as well! Also, in addition to Michael Frothingham, Tony Ambrose and Louis Dibiccari are in the kitchen for the time being as well. I look forward to heading up here myself and hearing more reviews from the hounds!

      I don't know the level of reliability here, but there are a couple of positive reviews of Vine Brook Tavern here http://groups.yahoo.com/group/lexingt...

        I know you are enthusiastic about a number of arlington restnts, but i am not, and lex is so much worse than arl., so i'd suggest you treat yourself to a 10 mnute drive to Il Cassale in Belmont Ctr, and reserve a banquette. They make my fav arancini in Boston (the risotto is made with a meat and tomato broth, which accounts for them being so flavorful.)
