In the Eliot Hotel

Romantic and featuring organic and locally-sourced cuisine, Clio is a standout by Boston restaurant legend
and chef Ken Oringer. Seven, ten, and fourteen course chef’s tasting menu options with wine pairings are
available. And, if you like Sahshimi, be sure to stop first at Uni Sahshimi Bar. Reservations are required.
A Broadway, Area 4
Cambridge, MA 02139
Just across the river from Boston in Cambridge, this farm-house style restaurant has only 28 seats and features a fireplace salon. Farm and marine bounty from around New England is the fare along with a finely curated selection of American and European wines and beers. The menu changes daily with fresh local vegetables, fish, and meats from a network of food purveyors known for environmental stewardship and quality. Definitely make a reservation.
500 Harrison Ave.
Boston, MA 02118
Cinquecento is a Roman Trattoria with rustic mix of reclaimed beams, brick, banquettes and booths and a cool bar made of illuminated onyx and marble. Lots of nooks and crannies here for a romantic escape. A bit more casual in feel and super tasty food with all of the flavors of being in, well Rome of course. Reservations are suggested.
140 Boylston Street
Valentine’s Day will be special at Troquet with three tasting menus to choose from and the always extensive wine list. Enjoy a drink at the bar and then move to the second floor for a wonderful dining experience with views of the Boston Common. Valentine’s Special Tasting Menu specifics are available by calling the restaurant. Reservations are required.
We hope you try out these Boston restaurants for Valentine’s Day!
