I am a walking cliche. I'm looking for a restaurant for an early dinner (6ish) in Old Town for 2/13 (the Saturday of Valentines). After perusing the posts here, I called Restaurant Eve hat in hand and was pleased they didn't laugh while I was still on the line. So, what's next? (Please don't tell me to make dinner, this is a long-distance romance so spending the day grocery shopping and preparing isn't the best use of extremely-limited time.)
My date is vegetarian and we both enjoy a good bottle of wine. We usually go for asian food but that's not an option in Old Town and after being together for quite a while we are comfortable taking a risk and trying something off our usual repertoire (Middle Eastern has worked well).
I've stalked this site, yelp, and open table and come up with a few possibilities: Me Jana, Laporta, Jackson 20, Restaurant Vero, Laylas. Any red flags there? Any others that should make the list? Any good bars or places to grab dessert later in the night?
