My parents want to take me & my husband out to dinner for my birthday. It'll be a Sunday evening, so although I'd like sushi, I don't know that Sundays are the best days.
From looking at the board, it seems that Mike and Anne's and Central Park are both highly recommended, moderately priced, new-to-me, and local. (We're in Altadena, they're in Temple City.)
Places we've gone before are Arroyo Chophouse (husband's favorite) and the Derby (parents' favorite,) Celestino's, Smitty's, and Ai, to give you an idea.
Knowing all this, which one should we go to? Or, any other suggestions?
