1) Smeraldi's Bistro in the Biltmore Hotel- how is the food? Atmosphere? General price range?
2) Checker's Downtown (in Hilton)
3) Ciudad. Heard the atmosphere/decor is not so great.
Basically would like to dine in downtown- have been to Water Grill, Cicada, 410 Boyd, Pete's. Not really interested in Engine Car nor Patina at the moment. It's a special occasion, want to be adventurous by going somewhere new.....old school would be nice- martinis vibe, good steaks, good fish, ect.
