I'm visiting Boston for a month. My boyfriend is working today until bout 8pm tonight.

Can anyone recommend a restaurant in Back Bay for tonight where we can wind down as well as havoign good food.

So far we've eaten in Match, sonsie, luigi's on newbury st, Kashmir, top of the hub, trident bookstore,

Anyone got any other recommendations for the back bay?

Generally speaking, I hate dining in Back Bay. It really has the largest concentration of overpriced, underperforming restaurants in the city.

However, if you are not able to go elsewhere, there are a few places I can recommend:

Laurel, on Berkeley St. is a very nice "new American" place with very good food, and reasonable prices. They also take reservations:


Casa Romero on Gloucester St. is a very pretty restaurant with decent renditions of Mexican food and good drinks.

Firefly, which is on Dartmouth St., next to Neiman Marcus, has a more casual atmosphere, and the food is pretty good.

One block down from that is Prairie Star, on the corner of Dartmouth and Columbus (yes, TECHNICALLY the South End, but close enough). They do decent Tex-mex food and good Margaritas.

For seafood, try either Skipjacks on Clarendon St., or the Atlantic Fish Company, on Boylston St.

For Indian food, I recommend the India Quality House, on Commonwealth Ave, near Kenmore Sq.

Thanks beantownman, I will check them all out.

My boyfriends apartment is in the backbay and want to dine close to home tonight as he left for work at 5.15 this morning and won't be home until about 8pm or later even though his work place is a few mins down the road so want to stay close to home tongiht. I promise we do venture out of back bay most of the time :)

Thanks again
