Where can I find a city with lots of "casually elegant" restaurants?
My sweetheart loved The Tippling Club in Singapore when he first visited in 2008. I used to love The Broadway Diner in Brooklyn. Also Oznot's Dish. We met in San Francisco where we ate at yummy places like Flour & Water. We've heard great things about Melbourne, Australia (maybe the capital of "casual elegance"?).
Where else in the world do people eat brilliantly, but unpretentiously?
We are planning a big trip.
Thanks for any suggestions!
