I'm in the enviable position of choosing a restaurant for a vendor to take a few of us to. Past venues have included Lou & Mickey's and A.R. Valentien.
I see this as an opportunity to try a place that would otherwise stretch my budget, but of course I still want to make sure it's reliably worthwhile.
I'm currently considering Bertrand at Mister A's and El Bizcocho. Any other suggestions? Any cuisine is fine, although we'd like to move away from steakhouses, and there should a reasonable range of flavors.
