My Fiance's 40th is at the end of August, though we live in the South Bay I have a hotel room for us at the Renaissance on Highland and want to take him out for a great fun dinner. Here is my problem I am stuck where. We have eaten at Jar, Lucques (a favorite), IL Pastaio, Ozza Pizzeria and I want us to go some place new. We both tend to like great ingredients prepared simply.-- Money is kind of issue -- We are getting married next year and don't want to blow too much on this. As much as I want to go to Providence we are going to have to pass for now. Also pass on Asian food since we tend to eat a lot where we live in the South Bay. Where would you suggest we go and what food would you recommend for us, tasting menus, etc?
Thank you so much!
PS Searched the board for ideas and I am still stuck .. thanks
