BFF coming into town, she use to live here and now poor thing lives in South Dakota. Wants a great dinner on a Friday (we have only one night to eat out). Great food she begs. Where do we go? She has already been to Michaels in a prior trip so it is unfortunately out. Tear falling. I have not been to Redlight and although just mentioned in the NYT I am not sure if I want to take a chance there. It has to be really good food. I love Sardinia and it is consistently good food. By the way BFF does not mind a not so pricey place. I could be a dive she says only make it good food. I am not in the mood for a dive and want a good mixed drink bar. Would anyone recommend Casale's next door to Sardinia. Haven't been there either but reviews look good. Do they have a bar? Where would a chowhound take a good food starved best friend? Help me out please.
