          +1 for Brasserie Jo. Would Back Bay social club work? I don't think I've ever been to a moderately priced business dinner, that's a tough price point.

          Hammersley's and Petite Robert are not really located in back bay.

            i know, not really, but on the back side of it, ya know? i don't really think of brasserie jo as back bay either, but $25pp in that neighb, in a room where people won't have to shout, is tough to call.

      I have some brit friends who continuously go to Stephanie's on Newbury street. Their group is always around six in number.

            Post 390 IS atrocious for sure.

            And Red Lantern is more like a club. Not really a setting for a business dinner.

            Stephanies is a hangout for cougars from the suburbs. Their signature dish is an onion ring thingie,

              To be fair, Stephanie's on Newbury was well ahead of the curve on overcharging for American comfort food dishes like meatloaf. If you like what they do, the service is much more hospitable and competent at its South End sibling, Stephi's on Tremont.

                My friends have business meetings at Stephanie's all the time. Not all business meetings are done in suits or quiet settings. Just ask the kid who started Facebook.
