Birthday dinner for 2 -- suggestions?

chris | Jul 22, 2006 08:28 PM

Alright, I'm looking for dinner for two.

Budget: Under $300 total (including wine, tax, tip).

Requirements: Any cuisine is welcome, BUT there needs to be at least one vegetarian entree on the menu (salads don't count). Multiple veg options is a plus.

No Go: Frontera/Topolobampo or Russian Tea Time (we've been, we just want something new).

Right now, I'm leaning towards Blackbird.

Also being considered are Aria and Salpicon. Brasserie Jo and Cafe Spiaggia both look interesting, but may be more difficult with the dietary requirements. Avenues seems to have a veg tasting option, but no prices are listed and my guess is that it's a bit more than I'd like to spend.

As much as I'd like to try Green Zebra, I've read enough negative things to scare me off (at least for a special occassion).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
