Dinner for 15 near Boston convention center

2thwoman Jan 29, 2013 10:03 AM

I'm looking for suggestions for dinner within walking distance of the convention center where 15 professional colleagues could have dinner.

    Presuming you're here for the dental conference (nice name), this is the seaport, for people with actual answers.

        Ok, that changes that, then. You're in the Back Bay at the Hynes, not the Boston Convention Center.

      There are two convention centers in very different parts of town.

      What kind of chow are you looking for and at what price point?

        Though it would be great to have great New England cuisine, I'm really looking for a good meal at a reasonable cost ( $40 per person) near Hynes Convention Center.

            Towne might work. It's right by Hynes. Helmed by two chefs with a pretty long history in New England.

                I'm well aware I like it more than most people.

                  lol, i know all the principals well and most of the revolving cast of managers who have come and gone. they simply cannot get this place to run on the right gears. i get special treatment when i go and even THAT is all over the place, so i simply don't feel right recommending it to anybody.
