Birthday Lunch or Dinner

slozier Jan 24, 2013 01:13 PM

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!

    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.

      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?
