I'm planning a birthday dinner, mine! I have to admit, I was thinking about Mistral since it's been a while since we've dined there but the Lampreia/Mistral post has me second guessing now that I know there's new staff in the kitchen. In trying to think of other "special occasion" type places that I haven't been to yet and I came up with Canlis and Herb Farm for starters. I have to admit I have not eaten at either restaurant yet because for whatever reason I pegged them as well marketed and well hyped but not really delivering fine food. So I have to ask, are either of these two establishments really worth a visit if you're an anal diner who fully expects the food to equal the pr ink that's been spilled over these two?? Thanks in advance for your .02!
