Bob - thank you very much for your recommendation for Pete's Downtown after drinks at the River Cafe. It was wonderful! We had no trouble getting a table at the RC - the martinis were fine as was the view. We were able to get a window table at Pete's as well. We had a stuffed artichoke to start. It was very good and much like what my Italian ex-husband used to make. I had stuffed pork chops and BF had a veal dish. Both were yummy - the pork especially so. Tiramisu for desert was fresh, moist, sensual.
All in all a very wonderful and romantic evening. Thanks again.
