Quick: birthday dinner venue in/near Newton where people can talk?

  • 7

Not a fancy dinner, simple food is fine, something for the vegetarians, not a lot of noise or TVs so probably not a sports bar, there will be about 10 people.

    The "back room" at Stellina in Watertown might fit the bill.

    Pescatarian OK? The Chestnut Hill location is one of the better Legals. I'd also second Fiorella's, or Lumiere or Farmstead Table if you're a bit more ambitious in terms of food quality.

    The back room at The Cottage would work as well.

    My family,same as your size group, really likes to meet at Naked Fish in Waltham right at 128, in the back private room/. Pricey for me, but prob much less pricey than the other recs. Its not the most Chowish rec but convenient to get to, nice quiet private room, exc service and decent somewhat creative food choices

    Davio's or Acquitaine in the Chestnut Hill "The Street" complex could work. Seasons 52 as well across the street in the Chestnut Hill Square complex.

    We recently had a surprisingly good meal at the Shanghai Social Club. They have a lot of back rooms and I thought it would be fun for a party. They can accommodate vegetarian and gluten free diets.

    Fiorella's [reasonably priced Italian], Dunn Gahrin's [American/Irish]
