I understand that these questions get monotonous, but take mercy on this West Coast chowhound who'll be in your lovely city for one night. We're a family of 4 rendevouzing before heading off to a football game at Notre Dame. One college student and one post-college. In the past,sans kids, we've have been to MK's (wonderful!)and Spiaggia Cafe (good), but this time we're looking for something to excite them. Ethnic, fun and hip, not too formal. Perhaps asian/fusion, thai, italian or middle eastern. Would Tizi Melloul fit the bill? If so, which room? How about Le Colonial? Chilpancingo?
I'm taking a stab in the dark here...and with food, that's a crime.
