We LOVE to eat!!

Please help! My husband and I are travelling to Boston from the UK for three nights and adore mexican, indian and want that "je ne sais quoi" for a special wedding anniversary/birthday dinner - ideally somewhere with knockout views.

Can you guys help? What is casa romero like for the mexican choice?

Are staying at Charlesmark Hotel so are very central.

I suggest visiting citysearch.com, which is an excellent resource in choosing restaurants. There are diner reviews which can help you decide if a restaurant is appropriate for an anniversary dinner.

Hi Anneen,

I've only been to Casa Romero once before, and I didn't particularly enjoy my meal...though everyone raves about it. Perhaps I hit it on an off night?

Since you're coming from the UK, I'm a bit reluctant to recommend any Indian places... All of the Brits I know here think that you can still get a better curry over there! However, if I had to offer a suggestion, I'd say either Kashmir (on Newbury Street) or Bhindi Bazaar (on Massachusetts Ave, at the end of Newbury). Both places seem authentic to me, though I'm no expert!

Not sure what kind of budget you have for your anniversary/bday dinner, but if you're looking for a great place with a nice view, try The Bristol Lounge at The Four Seasons, or Excelsior (on Boylston Street). If you ask for a table by the windows, you'll get a really lovely view of the Boston Common. I've been to both places several times, and have never had a bad meal. The Bristol is a bit cheaper than Excelsior, but still very luxe.

We really like a Persian restaurant called Lala Rokh. It has great food, good prices, and wonderful ambiance. It is located in the heart of Boston - Beacon Hill area.

If you're looking in Back Bay, and wanting something a little different, I like Bomboa - Brazilian cuisine, Really good. They have a great bar, the service is excellent, they have a patio with seating for 40 . No view, but the drinks are marvelous, the decor is wild.

I've had the pan roasted duck, and the crispy skin salmon, my husband liked the pork with sweet potato puree.
