Quiet dinner near Northeastern
I'm trying to come up with a quiet, comfortable spot for a weeknight dinner with a friend near Northeastern. She isn't a very adventurous eater, so sushi and heavily spiced foods are out. I thought of Trattoria Toscana, but need somewhere that will take a reservation. Toro is too loud. Any other ideas?
Brasserie is close to NU but I think you should explore more possibilities. The South End is at your door step. I like The Butcher Shop on Tremont near Claredon.
If quiet and comfortable is the primary concern, over value, you might see if you can eat at the MFA without paying the admission charge. Bravo seems to be a spot that people enjoy when they really want to have a conversation while eating foods that they recognize.
