My dad's birthday is coming up at the end of May. For my mom's 70th I took them to Per Se. It was great. My mom has since passed away and I'm trying to think of a place that could top that. I was thinking about EMP-we've been there a bunch of times throughout all of its various incarnations, however not the current one. I went to reviews here and they don't seem to be recently favorable. The only reason I ask is that there are five of us now (my bf, my bro and my dad's gf) and I'm going to have to be on the phone immediately when they open the line and there are only 2 5-tops. So I was looking for something as back-up (or other suggestions) Basically my dad just likes well done, unusual combinations (WD-50 is a favorite) and I just want to make this as special as my mom's was. Sorry this was so long!
