I hit the big six-o about a month from now, and I'd like to take myself and a couple of BFFs out for a really special meal. I'm looking for a place that combines good food with a bit of a "scene" -- fairly hip, but not too loud because we want to hear ourselves chat. Has to be open on a Sunday night. Any & all suggestions welcome. FWIW, some places I'm considering are:
Nix on Sotto (love the food but too loud) and Plan Check (love the food but too casual).
