MAISON ROBERT, 45 School Street, Boston, (617) 227-3370. This Boston classic in the renovated Old City Hall was opened in 1972 by Lucien Robert and his wife Ann, A.M. '56. Lucien's nephew Jacky Robert, maître cuisinier de France and principal chef, offers classic and contemporary French food (with Asian accents) in the menu of the elegant main dining room.

All major credit cards accepted.
TERRAMIA RISTORANTE, 98 Salem Street, North End, Boston, (617) 523-3112. "Terramia has become a hit with Boston insiders. The 40 seats are filled with savvy diners (including the owners of other restaurants paying the ultimate compliment)," claimed Bon Appétit in 1996.

UPSTAIRS AT THE PUDDING, 10 Holyoke Street, Cambridge, (617) 864-1933. The atmosphere, like the menu, is elegant: bowls of fresh flowers on the table, pink tablecloths, chandeliers, and rich hunter-green walls stretching up to high ceilings--a setting worthy of the venerable Hasty Pudding Club, this restaurant's downstairs neighbor. The food also upholds that club's tradition of excellence without pretense. Lunch and dinner. Weekend brunch, Saturday and Sunday. Outdoor herb garden.
