2 Dinners in SoBE - Romantic and Business

mrmagee | Mar 6, 2009 01:14 PM

So coming down to SoBe all the way from Fort Lauderdale (although originally from London). Staying 4 nights at the Loews for a trade show, but bringing the wife and baby with. The show starts Monday night, but coming down Sunday so I get a night with the wife - we have already organized a babysitter Bringing her with so she can get some R&R, and it doesn’t cost anything extra as the business is paying for the hotel. Have only been out once with her since our boy was born in September, so looking for somewhere really nice and romantic for our ‘date’ night!

Also need somewhere for dinner on Tuesday for me, my boss (flying in from London) and an important client of ours - a European lady living/working in Houston. For this, need somewhere upscale and elegant; not too noisy, but ideally somewhere we know its SoBe. Also want to be able to walk to both restaurants. Was originally thinking Casa Tua, but I think its too expensive - expensive is fine, just not break the bank expensive.

So, was thinking Wish for Sunday night with the wife, and perhaps Escopazzo or Bistro One LF on Tuesday. Then saw the set-menu at Blue Door, could be an option for Sunday but I am not sure the missus will think being at the Delano too romantic (good for drinks, not sure for dinner), but this could work well, and could do Wish for the business dinner.

Any suggestions / tips would be really appreciated. Also, if you know of any other deals for our Sunday night dinner, like the $36 menu at ChinaGrillMgmnt restaurants or the 25% off wine at Talula - would be much appreciated.
