My boyfriend's birthday is coming up, and I'd like to find a suitable restaurant to celebrate. He doesn't like pretentious places or very traditional ones. For example, Le Select would be too traditional a setting. (I'm more of a foodie, so it wouldn't matter to me so long as the food is good). So far, he really digs the vibe at Ten Feet Tall and Tinto. He also liked the friendly, intimate atmosphere of Pop Bistro, as well as their food.
Any recommendations, preferably downtown, would be appreciated.
