Meritage is a good place for dates, as long as your dining companion is into wine. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star restaurant’s menu is divided according to types of wines and the meals that best pair with them. If you’re both into wine, it’s a match made in heaven. (Otherwise, your date might be as flat as a day-old bottle of sparkling.) Items on the menu can be ordered as either small or large plates, and you can share a bunch if you’re feeling intimate or if it’s a first date, order a small plate as a starter and a large plate as your entree. If you’re trying to impress someone, be sure to request a table by the window. The views of Boston Harbor from Meritage are stunning and surpass your standard candlelit meal: At night, the harbor lights up for a uniquely romantic ambiance. Separated from the restaurant and more trendy feeling than the main dining area, the bar is also a good place for dates — again, assuming you both like wine.
