Birthday Dinner-Allston

A friend of mine is having a milestone birthday later this month and we are doing a paint night at Boston Wine School, 1354 Comm Ave. Any suggestions on a nice place around there? Thanks!

    You could go over to Washington Square in Brookline on Beacon Street and hit Ribelle or Fairstead Kitchen.

    Or you could go a little farther down to Coolidge Corner and go to Lineage.

      Thanks for these suggestions, I forget that Washington Square really is not that far. That may throw Fireplace in the mix...

        Not actually opened yet - according to their website, the "anticipated opening" is this coming weekend.

        Here's some more information:

        Oh hey, I live right next door to Boston Wine School.

        Within walking distance:
        If you like Japanese izakaya food, Ittouku is a few steps away and is kind of fun.

        Deep Ellum is a quick walk away--just walk down Allston St to Brighton Ave.

        Shanghai Social Club is just across the street and is fun for a party.

        And you're literally right across the street from the B line.
