Several people recommended Annisa for my dinner with my girlfriend in response to a post I put up last week. I just want to see if people have any recent experiences with it to confirm that this is a good idea, and if so I'd appreciate any tips people might have. Additionally, I have some vague notion that I heard Anita Lo was moving from somewhere to somewhere--so does anyone know if she's still at Annisa? This may all be a figment of my imagination.
I have also made a reservation at Hearth for the birthday, but as I said before I got the impression that that might not be the best spot for this kind of occasion. Any further thoughts on this, on Hearth v. Annisa generally (apples and oranges I know), or on where else I should consider going (the general requirements being special but not exorbitant, and excellent food, possible with some Asian influence) would be appreciated.
