What to wear to a restaurant opening?

I have been invited to a restaurant opening in Boston tonight!
One problem...I don't know (and neither does my inviter) much about the restaurant, other than it is located in a hotel and is "American"

So this isn't totally food related but...WHAT DO I WEAR? I was thinking little black dress, knit--not too fancy but still classy.

What do you all think?
--Thank you!
