Anniversary dinner with a 7 month old?


I am looking for some Boston restaurant recommendations for a special dinner to celebrate our 5th year wedding anniversary in September.

We will be travelling with a 7 month old, so nothing too formal or pretentious but somewhere befitting of an anniversary dinner where a highchair or a stroller would be no problem. We will probably have an early dinner around 6pm due to our daughters age, therefore somewhere with a good atmosphere at this time would be a plus.

Budget flexible, ideally no more than $200. We are staying at the Hyatt Regency near Boston Common so somewhere walking distance would be a bonus. If not a taxi ride is not a problem.

In terms of restaurant, I would welcome any suggestions apart from Steakhouses as we don't eat beef.

Thanks in advance.

It's difficult, because a nice anniversary-style place isn't really a great choice for a baby either.

Not far from your hotel, there's a lovely restaurant called The Marliave. I eat there all the time and it's quite good, certainly more than nice enough for a celebratory dinner. I think they would be able to handle the baby without too much trouble. Also, at that time of night, I don't think they'd be too crowded so you could get served quickly. Plus, they accept reservations, which is a good thing.

One of the Legal Seafoods would work I think.

Legal Seafoods would handle the kids well, and serves excellent quality fish. To make it more of an "occasion" go to the one at Liberty Wharf, in the Seaport district. It is right on the water. But the one at Park Plaza, near your hotel, is very good too.

Seven months... trying to remember... they barely move then. Just have lots of snacks and things for them to play with, which you can tie to the chair so they don't fling it across the room. :o) They're probably OK with noise. Prezza would actually work. A lot of pasta and seafood items on that menu. It is in the North End. Actually, most of the "red sauce" places in the North End would be fine as well, though perhaps not "special" enough for your occasion. Check out Gennaro's 5 North Square, for a slightly elevated red sauce place.
