Hi Boston Hive,
I’m looking for a great place to take my Maid/Matron of Honor when she visits me in Boston in about 2 weeks. She lives in Florida and will actually be too pregnant (and close to her due date) to attend our wedding because it’ll involve flying up. Despite our distance, she’s been a perfect Maid/Matron of Honor and wonderful friend, so I want to spoil her a bit when she visits (and well, spoil me!). I want to take her out to a “very Boston,” very fancy, delicious restaurant for lunch. I like to describe it as “deliciously indulgent,” since we’ll be “ladies who lunch” on a weekday in the middle of downtown Boston. I’m having a hard timing choosing a place, especially because I’d like it to have an outdoor seating option (with a great view, I hope!). Any ideas?
Thanks in advance!

I loooove the Chart House. They are on the water near the aquarium and have outdoor seating with a great view. And DELICIOUS food.

I would try http://www.bostonchefs.com/ , they are supposed to have really incredible reviews of different places to try. 🙂

Oh, great ideas, thanks! And how have I lived in Boston for 5 years without knowing about BostonChefs.com? 🙂 Thanks!

The Boston Harbor Hotel has outdoor seating and it’s gorgeouso verlooking the water. Miel at the Intercontinental also has awesome outdoor seating and is on the water next door. I’ve been to both and love them!
My sister took her bm’s to the Four Seasons for afternoon tea, it isn’t outside, but it’s across form the Common and it was so nice. You coudl always go there and spend sometime at the Common or Public Garends which are both Boston landmarks!

Ditto the tea at Four Seasons. It’s fantastic! Call ahead for a reservation and specifically ask for a window table so you can people watch!
And don’t forget to hold your pinkie out when you sip your tea. 🙂

Depending on what type of atmosphere your looking for, and if you are interested in doing afternoon tea, The Taj has the “ladies who lunch” vibe with a great selection of food and tea, but the Boston Harbor Hotel has a better “younger” vibe for their afternoon tea…but I prefer the tea/food at the Taj!
