I'll be visiting a friend in a few weeks who wants to go to Chez Panisse for his birthday and live out a dream he's had since cooking school. I would prefer to try Gary Danko or Fifth Floor or Masa's to the Monday prix fixe at CP. He always says I make the best choices regarding restaurants and what's good - should I try to influence his choice to mine?
We have Sunday and Monday, hope to fit in dim sum,tacos, maybe Aqua.
Any thoughts on the Ritz-carlton or Campton place?
