When you’ve got a big date coming up, a dinner reservation at Wm. Mulherin’s Sons is the move. Lots of wood, brick, and better-than-average cocktails make this an ideal spot to dress up a little and get to know someone beyond how many siblings they have and their love of the movie Labyrinth. Start with the speck-wrapped dates and the speck-and-egg pizza. If you want something without speck, split a pasta, too.
