Boston restaurants – Fodor's Travel Talk Forums

Sel de la Terre would be perfect for you. It is only a few blocks away from 60 State, all in an area where it is perfectly safe for a woman to walk alone until all hours.

Before and after dinner, you could stroll out Long Wharf and Aquarium Wharf and go over to Christopher Columbus Park on the other side of the Marriott. Good brasserie food, excellent staff, I think maybe best frites in Boston, but that could be argued. Petit Robert is also excellent but the South End requires a cab ride, then another back to your hotel or whereever you are meeting your husband, and taking cabs in Boston is much less pleasant than taking them in NY. Yes, much less pleasant than taking them in New York.
