Early dinner near the Academy of Music

I am making a very quick trip for a concert at the Academy of Music. I am looking for a quiet, lovely place for an early pre-concert celebratory dinner for four on a Saturday evening. Thanks for suggestions.

    Estia across the street is nice enough for a celebratory dinner.

      Take a look at Sbraga too.

          Sbraga is outstanding, although quite loud.

          Estia is 15 feet away and much quieter. The whole fish is the thing to get there.

            +3 for Estia. And get the octopus too.
