Hello all, I have a restaurant search for you. Me and my non-foodie significant other will be celebrating an anniversary and he's treating me to a non-Outback/Cheesecake Factory dinner (cause for celebration). If you haven't guessed we are both working on a budget (graduate students) so I was hoping for a dinner for the two of us for about $75-100 (but more so on the 75 front). The cost would cover our entrees and maybe a shared appetizer (though its not that important). Seafood/Thai/Ethiopian/Vietnamese/Tapas places are out (my partner is the simple type) but I was hoping for a place with flavor.
I've settled on a couple of places (..Zengo, Oya) but I was hoping my fellow chowhounders will give me some hope for a couple other tasty places that has a pretty backdrop. Any help would be greatly appreciated
