Friday night is my birthday. I'm tired of the local (Manhattan Beach) restaurants. I've scoured the archives and just can't find any place that fits my needs. Which are: not more than 1/2 hour away driving in Friday night traffic, not seafood as my BIG birthday splurge will my first time at Providence on Saturday night (oh I am so excited, thank you board), not extremely pricey for the same reason, would like a nice environment for 3 couples to hear each other talk.
I haven't been to the Bottle Inn in at least a year, any recent visits to recommend it?
Joe's, Hal's, and Lily's have been eliminated for different reasons.
I know this is wishful thinking but I hope someone can come up with a hidden delight!
