Would love some help in finding a great restaurant for my boyfriend's 30th birthday. We typically love to sit at the bar (especially those that we can see the chefs cook) and great food & atmosphere are both important. Some places we love going to in our neighborhood - Aria, L'artusi, Locanda Verde, Joseph Leanords, Jeffrey's Grocery, Perla, Mary's Fish Camp, Aqua Grill. I'm totally happy to splurge for a great place and am open to a tasting menu.
Thanks for your help!
