A big thank you to everyone on this board for their recommendations.
I went to 4 places - Estia, Alma de Cuba, Mercato, and Bliss. Couldn't have been happier with the places that I picked.
Estia was absolutely beautiful (the restaurant itself) and we had such amazing service.
Alma was good - the first time that I have ever had Cuban food and I would definitely go back. I also tried ceviche for the first time so that was a bonus.
Mercato was my favorite place - I had the filet and my gf had the Lobster and Shrimp pasta which was fantastic. Perhaps the fact that we weren't getting charged for drinks and that it was also my birthday made it even better. My gf has been to Italy and she did nothing but rave about the food.
Bliss was also good, but my least favorite of the four. I don't know if I would go back there (only because there are so many other places to try), but I definitely wasn't disappointed.
I am so happy that I took advantage of the RW specials this time around (missed the last few since moving to Philly). Now we can't wait for February.
