So our anniversary is coming around again. Usually, we do a tasting menu at a fancy restaurant. This year, we were finally going to get around to Melisse. But I'm 5 months pregnant, and a 3 hour meal sounds like too much for me right now.
Geographically, we're willing to go as far west as Beverly Hills (we live in Pasadena). There are a lot of newish restaurants that I want to try, but most of them are small plates kind of places. I find that it's better to go with a group to those kinds of places because hubby and I aren't big eaters and we end up not being able to try that much stuff, which is disappointing. We're definitely more into the food than ambience, but since it's for our anniversary, we'd like it to be nicer than a hole in the wall. We like all types of food.
