Hello, we have some foodie friends visiting soon and we haven't tried all that many places ourselves. We have been visiting for a number of years and tried a lot of the places that were good, not sure how they rate now.
If you were picking an above average (not touristy), sit-down, relaxing dinner, where would you go. I know that there really isn't anything superb in the area, but still looking. The following are places that we have tried and what we thought of them:
1 Collage-would be our first pick, but closed nights that friends are visiting
2 95 Cordova-big disappointment
3 Tasting Room-better than average, possibly a front runner
4 Catch 27-love the byob, fish was fresh but over-cooked, not relaxing vibe
5 Floridian-decent, but like Catch 27, not relaxing atmosphere
6 Gypsy, Purple Olive, Gas-all fair, no where I would want to take visitors.
7 Black Fly-good pizza and martinis, otherwise food is good, but not worth the price
8 Raintree-haven't been in years, but reviews not good
9 the Pavillion and Bistro de Leon , La Pentola we have not tried.
Please tel me what you would recommend, sort of at a loss at this point.
Oh, also Fratellis, only mediocre and Cafe Atlantico same.
