i'm going up to the SB area for my 30th birthday in july. we're staying in solvang, and will be exploring the surrounding vineyards (suggestions welcome!). I would like to do one nice dinner for the night of my bd (july 4). it doesn't have to be a spago level place (though that would be fine), but just somewhere with nice service and good food. i've been to hitching post before, which i liked, but want to try new places. we'll be there for 3 nights. i would like to do los olivos cafe at some point, but not necessarily that night. we're willing to venture into the city of sb if necessary. also, fireworks views are not essential at all, but that would be nice if it worked out. really, it's all about finding a nice place for a good meal and good service where i can enjoy my friend's company. thanks!
