I'm seeking expert advice from fellow respected hounds.
Want your recommendations for dinner on a Monday night for 2 couples. All are serious foodies and wine drinkers. Budget is about $50 pp excluding wine/taxes/tip. Anywhere in the downtown core will do, as will any style of cuisine. The key point is that the resto should have an excellent wine list-covering a variety of regions with good price points and excluding crappy vintages at over-inflated prices. In other words-not interested in a wine list that represents good producers with the worst vintages at stupid markups for the unwitting consumer. Food should be solid.
Right now I'm thinking Reds because I've heard great things about Michael Steh and the wine list seems ok. Comments anyone?
Other suggestions greatly appreciated.
