Apiary, Little Giant or The Orchard?

valerie | Nov 11, 2010 05:45 PM

We are meeting a good friend of mine and her guy for dinner. They are visiting from Chicago. I don't know the guy that well, but I believe he is not the most adventurous eater. They are going for italian food some place the other night they are in town, so I think my best option is picking an "american" place. I also don't want to pick some place over-the-top expensive -- again, don't know the other guy that well. I'm thinking about $50-$60 per person. None of us are big drinkers.

I have narrowed it down to the aforementioned Apiary, Little Giant, The Orchard. I have been to The Orchard, but it was several years ago.

I have reviewed the menus of the others and they look nice. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts, mostly on Apiary vs. Little Giant, in terms of taking a non-chowhound and overall atmosphere?

Oh, and I also have a feeling that my friend's boyfriend will be wearing jeans....would that be appropriate at Apiary? I get the feeling it's a little nicer than that, but maybe not?
