I was just invited to select a restaurant for a nice dinner out with only two weeks notice for a Saturday night. Many of my choices were booked but I can get into either Acquerello or Perbacco. Other places that I couldn't get in were Zuni, Kokkari, Rich Table, Al's Place. The most important concern is great food to justify a steep bill and atmosphere with more stress on conversation than people watching. Besides Acquerello or Perbacco, any place I haven't thought of one could recommend. Many thanks.
