Hi, all. It's that time of year again, and I can't decide where to go for my birthday dinner. I need suggestions.
I don't favor new or trendy for newness' or trendiness' sake. Nor do I think there's a huge intrinsic appeal to artfully-plated small plates, counter-intuitive preps, or high prices. I just want great food, relaxed atmosphere, no pretense, and good service.
By way of example of what I like, I really find Salvatore's and Cafe Munir soul-satisfying experiences. But it really can be any cuisine.
All suggestions welcome.
