Post Graduation Dinner near Copley Sq.

rsgdmd Mar 17, 2013 08:53 AM

I'm looking for ideas for a Friday night for after my son's graduation from Northeastern. My wife & I and his grandparents are staying near Copley - ideal would be a short walk or cab ride away. My wife, son & I are adventurous, grandparents not so much. Any ideas for a nice place that could work for all of us?

    Mistral is classy and has really well executed cuisine. It's got a beautiful atmosphere and solid service. Clio is also french cuisine and upscale. It's a bit more inventive than Mistral.

      I like Mistral too but another option would be Brasserie Joes which is a bit closer 1/2 block from Copley Place on the same street (Huntington Ave).

        We had a similar configuration at a graduation and were very pleased with Eastern Standard which is a short cab ride away. On another occasion with the grandparents we went to Brasserie Jo and they loved that, too.

          Thanks for the suggestions. It seems my Chowhounding son has eaten at Clio, Mistral, Brasserie Jo, and some of the other places I was thinking of. Wanting to go somewhere he hasn't, I made a reservation at Hammersley Bistro, which seems to get uniformly positive reviews here.

          A real special occassion type place is Top of the Hub. The food is really pretty good, although you do pay extra for the view.
