My husband and I are going to be in the Morristown area tomorrow and I want to treat him to an early dinner, around 5:30 PM, for his birthday. We love French food and I had made a reservation at A Toute Heure. However they just updated their menu and took away the things I was looking forward to (bone marrow, short ribs) and traded them for mostly fried foods. Sorry, but you can't fool me by using the words "crispy," "fritters," etc. Call me picky but it is disappointing when a restaurant that purports to use the freshest ingredients feels the need to disguise them by breading and frying them.
Anyway, I am now in need of last minute recommendations (obviously can't do Lorena's!) for a romantic restaurant where the food shines. Willing to travel about 30 minutes outside of the area. We live south of the area so would rather travel south. Places I'm thinking about without having been to any of these: Blu, Fascino, Chez Catherine.
