I'm an avid lurker here at chowhound, but this is my first post - with two little ones at home I don't get out much for good chow :(
Four of us would like an evening out in the city (three of us are coming in from the burbs). We're looking for a relaxed atmosphere where we can gab for hours while enjoying a delicious meal and some good vino. We're fairly adventurous palate-wise, though one of us is vegetarian (but will eat fish), so that needs to be taken into account. Budget-wise, I'd say $60 pp (app, main and dessert) excluding wine would be a good ballpark.
Would prefer to skip Italian and Indian this time round.
One of the gang tried to book the Sultan's Tent - but we're on the waiting list - if that helps.
