Help!! Need some help buying a dinner for someone ...

PaulF | Dec 3, 2005 02:27 PM

Going to buy dinner for my son's coach tonight. All the kids on the team chipped in 20 bucks and I've got 200 dollars to spend.

We're in Santa Monica.

I was going to go for Melisse. I've never been there myself, but I figure 200 dollars has to be enough for dinner, right? Dinner for two (he's got a girlfriend).

One of the parents insists that I go to Vito's on Ocean Park. It's her "special place" restaurant. I've never been there, either. What do you all think of Vito's on Ocean Park. I've never gone there because it was one of those places shut down by the health department a few years back. I'm sure it's clean now, but ...

Any other suggestions for a cool dinner for a coach and his girlfriend? Somewhere in Santa Monica or Venice works.
