Looking to spend maybe $30-40/pp. before drinks, maybe share appetizers and salads but not necessarily entrees. Not fancy but not pub-like, sort of upscale casual. Not asian or indian. Prefer downtown branching out northbound. Some suggestions I've received include Paris Club, Piccolo Sogno, MK, GT Oyster. Doubt we can get in anywhere really hot, but don't really want old and tired either.
Any suggestions will be carefully considered! Thanks.
