I am planning a special birthday dinner for my best friend (who will be celebrating one of those "milestone" birthdays!) and our respective partners.
I would appreciate any suggestions for a wonderful tasting menu that also offers a wine pairing which will not totally bankrupt me! I'm not trying to be cheap, but I need to stay somewhat sensible. I am looking for the best bang for the buck in this category. Sona and Ortolan will probably be out as too cost prohibitive. I would also like a great vibe/ambiance coupled with warm and efficient service. Help! Please!
