V-Day Providence, minus the romance

madgoodness | Feb 12, 2008 10:11 AM

This may be a tough bill to fill, but I'm looking for a place to take a friend who's coming to town on Valentine's Day. This is NOT a romantic affair, and I'm having a hard time coming up with a place where we can relax for a couple hours with a decent and reasonably priced meal and a bottle of wine. We're normally comfortable at Julian's on a Thursday night -- though the kitchen is known for their erratic ways, the super-friendly and (if need be) apologetic service almost always makes up for it. Any similarly cozy, laid-back dinner spots that might not be all love-birded out on the 14th? Loie Fuller's is a bit uptight for my taste (I had such bad service I can't imagine returning), and I suspect the Red Fez will be packed. My guess is that Red Stripe, Haruki East, and Nick's will all be overwhelmed. Am I missing any obvious options?
