There are five of us going to dinner before the opera in Walnut Creek. I have eaten at both restaurants, and was leaning toward Amalfi; however, I did some research here and on the web, and learned that the former chef had died, and that a new chef from Blackhawk was taking over.
Has anyone tried Amalfi recently, and could you report back on your experience? I remember being impressed by both the food and the setting, but since we're bringing fellow 'hounds from Seattle, I'm looking for a great, not just good, restaurant.
Should I just fall back on the Yacht Club? We did try Ephesus (is that the right name...the Greek/ Mediterannean place),and liked the atmosphere, but the food wasn't great.
