I have the chance to get a $500 gift certificate for Mistral, its a prize and as such I obviously have to pay taxes on it so it isn't exactly free.
We don't normally eat at places like Mistral preferring small ethnic hole in the walls with great food.
Bear with me and give me input to if Mistral is worth the prices seen and whether this really is a opportunity not to be missed.
For example $500 in Mistral how far does that normally go, what are 'normal' final bills there.
Thanks for your input
