On the Sunday of my bday weekend we are having dinner with the folks and my sis (her bday is this Fri. and mine in 2 weeks) so, I picked Bashan since huge TM's on a Sunday can make Monday's a drag and I have been wanting to try it anyway... so that leaves Fri. and Sat. Need a good (but not crazy expensive option) for Friday night (probably 3 couples) and open to anything for Sat. (me & hubby) that won't kill me when sandwiched with the other 2 dine-outs (too much of a good thing can sometimes be just that). Would like a nice variety - prefer a vairety of flavors and atmospheres. Was thinking maybe Ortolan for Sat. if A) I can get a rez and B) you don't think it will completely kill going to Bashan on Sun. OH! BYOB/corkage preferred but not mandatory.
