Anniversary dinner downtown / Thoughts on MK?

Bill Pardue | Aug 23, 2006 10:31 PM

My wife and I will be celebrating our 10th anniversary downtown in September and are considering our dining options. Topolobampo's available reservations were too late for us, so we snapped one up at MK. We've been hearing positive and negative about MK, so we're wondering what other places people might recommend as a romantic dinner in the downtown area. Not really looking for 3 hour degustations (not that I mind...). We'll be at the Burnham Hotel, so walk/short cab from there preferred. By the way, if you read LTH you'll have seen this question there, and the only response I've received so far is one saying not to stereotype Custom House as a steakhouse (which may be a very good discussion to have, but not exactly helping me).

If we can't agree on anything else, we get a small dinner and do the 9 p.m. dessert tasting at Tru, which would hardly be a disaster.

Thanks in advance!
