I have to spend next workweek in a warehouse in the region in the Subject line. Like I-15 X I-10 region give or take 15 miles.
It seems pretty blue collar/fast food based on what retaurants pop up on the Yahoo maps. OK, I am blue collar too but I would like to find a more unique/creative place for at least one dinner out. (college neighborhoods??)
I tend more toward Asian ethnic cuisines, but am open to anything done with good flair. Very modern, well styled, happy ambience preferred (if available). I don't like huge portions, grease or giant meat. Nothing that "comes with a mound of fries". Hate to feel too full. Love surprises and restaurants that really show their passion for good food, not neccessarily expensive. I also like places with good microbrews and intelligent beer-food pairings.
Any recommendations? I'm offline by Sunday evening.
Thanks In Advance for replies!
