Trying to Choose - Birthday Dinner for 2

PaulaG | Dec 2, 2004 01:17 PM

I'll be in the city celebrating a birthday & am looking for place to have a great dinner for 2 on a Saturday night closer to christmas (12/18). I'd ideally like to spend no more than in the $100-150 range for food & wine (we will get a bottle) for 2 before tax & tip.....

My first 2 choices don't have seating (Babbo & Lupa)...places we've liked before (to give you a sense of our tastes) are Five Points, ViceVersa, Beppe, Rain.

Based on my research on this board & on the web I am considering the following:


Can I get some feedback on which of these you might recommend & why? Perhaps add your second choice as well in case I hit the reservations snag again....

If you have any other better ideas, I'm open. I'm leaning more toward Italian or Eclectic/Contemporary American .....

Thanks in advance.
