budget strapped challenge

scooter | Feb 24, 2005 11:12 AM

Going to dinner with another couple this weekend. Here's the challenge: we can't afford to go anywhere too crazy...and they can. I'd like to find a place that feels more expensive then it is. We also usually try to pick a place with an inexpensive wine list or no wine list at all because we've been burned on that in the past. Neighborhood is not an issue, although east side would be better. Cuisine is open. The only criteria is that the food is excellent (and no sushi).

Here are some of my ideas, places we've been in the past:

Via Emilia
Ali Baba

Any other ideas in this range
