Birthday Lunch or Dinner

Hi All-- A friend of mine and I are looking for a special occassion place to celebrate our birthdays together in March. We both live in Natick so anywhere in the area-- with parking-- would be great. We love American, Italian, Greek and Mexican. The parking is key b/c really, I can't stand driving around not being able to find a spot, so Boston is out (unless they have valet). We're looking for something "special" as we're treating ourselves and we'd love any recommendations of "gems..." I know this may seem vague given how many restaurants there are around here but let me know your favorites! Thanks so much!

  1. A lot of places have valet parking in the city. Especially at the higher end. Do you want something hip & bustling? Quiet and romantic? What price point are you thinking?

      I would say something hip but not too loud, since we want to have a conversation and be able to sit for a while. This celebration is w/ a friend so it doesn't need to be romantic! :) Price point is a good question: Maybe not spend more than $50-60 a piece?

    2. Eastern Standard Kitchen would fit the bill. Rather hip place, nice atmosphere, excellent food and cocktails and fitting for a celebration. They also have valet parking and the price point should fit your budget.
