I first posted the above question 3 years ago regarding which Jose Garces restaurant would be the best at which to use a high value gift certificate. After getting advice from my fellow Chowhounders, my family and I ended up going to Garces Trading Company. We had a great meal there by choosing the chef's tasting menu. We still have the one gift certificate and we are feeling like it is time to finally use it. I am not interested in Rosa Blanca or Distrito and Volver is too expensive. At the moment, I am trying to decide between Amada and Tinto. Which one would you choose? Please advise!
