I have finally got reservations for Canteen. I usually travel alone so getting into Canteen has never worked. I am very excited, but worry about my dinner partner. I don't think he is much of a foodie (yet) and I am concerned a prix fixe menu may be off putting because it is limited . Is this a good choice or should I find something a little safer w/o prix fixe?
If not I was thinking of something still small, food he is familiar with, but still has a wow factor. Some places come to mind: Seven Hills, La Ciccia, L'Ardoise, Petit Laurent, Le Charm or Zuni Cafe. I am open to other suggestions too. When I ask him he says he is open to anything. We've had a lot of Japanese and Vietnamese food together in Sacramento. I'd like to try something new with him. We also have reservations for the next night at Kokkari. Thanks
