I'm looking to try something new and avoid another trip to PF Changs for dinner out Friday night with a friend.
She's requested Chinese, and wants someplace 'a little nicer' where we will feel comfortable taking up a table for awhile to do some catching up. (I think we'd both be willing to do someplace more casual if it offers great food, and won't be concerned about a slow turn on the table.)
Her suggestion was PF Changs, but I would like to try something new , and even better if it's a non-chain. I think I could talk her into Japanese, however she's not a sushi fan (although I am), so we'd have to go somewhere that offers more than just sushi. Perhaps Vietnamese as well; I'm not much of a Thai fan, though.
We'll be meeting at AZ Mills, but I am comfortable driving to Scottsdale or wherever for a nice meal. Price isn't a primary concern. We're also planning on eating a little on the early side (6pm or so) so hopefully crowds won't be as large of a factor.
She'll want to review a menu online prior to agreeing, as well. Not as large of a problem as it used to be, but still a possible factor!
