My wife and I usually eat at a lot of the cheaper chowhound establishments and some places above that price range but we would like to explore something in a different category. We are planning three meals in the $100 for two range. We don't really drink alcohol so wine is not included in that price. Any type of food is fine, just looking for 3 can't miss places in that price range. My wife loves tasting menus so those always seem to please her.
We are in the South Bay and we will travel pretty much anywhere, going to places outside of the south bay gives us chance to explore the city a little as well.
Also can you recommend some dishes to go with the establishments?
