Hey I have a birthday coming up and my parents want to take me out to dinner. They know I'm quite the chowhound so they're letting me pick. Normally I'm more reserved but I'm willing to go upper-middle class since it's a birthday and they want to go somewhere special too.
I definitely do enjoy the modern, minimal, luxe kind of settings but my parents wouldn't feel comfortable so I'm ruling out places like Kultura, Colbourne Lane, and Trevor which I still want to try.
In the past we've really enjoyed The Rosebud, JKWB as a family.
So do you guys have any suggestions? There's lot of places I want to try but I don't want it to be a fortune (like Susur, Perigee, etc.) or too-cool-for-school type things. I'm thinking at this point either C5, Hiro Sushi, or Cowbell. I'm going to pick a place I haven't tried...
Help is appreciated!
