I'm new to the ChowHound community, nonetheless I've been reading some of your reviews reviews and think some of you can provide some insight for me.
My girlfriend and I are celebrating our 1 yr anniversary in Jan and I'm entertaining a few different restaurants for us. I'm looking for a warm, romantic setting...great service, great food, great cocktail list, great wine would be an added bonus but not a necessity.
I've eaten at No 9, and it's a bit too stuffy for this occasion, and I'd like to try something new. I was considering L'espalier, however the new location seem a bit more "business like" for lack of a better term, and I'd rather not drop $300 as some other posters have suggested. We both enjoy all types of food, and I'm thinking about Clio or perhaps Troquet. I'd like to keep the budget around $100/person.
Any and all thoughts and suggestions are welcome.
Thank you in advance
