I finally visited Black Pearl over restaurant week (have always meant to go, but once I'm in the neighborhood, the call of fresh uni and toro never fail to draw me to Sushi Den). I had a great meal there, exceeding my expectations. The other thing I discovered is that Sunday evenings, EVERYTHING is HALF OFF (excluding part but not all of the wine list). We went last week, had 2 apps, 2 entrees, a bottle of wine, dessert, and coffee. The bill came to $50 plus gratuity (they add in 20% of the original bill), and half of that was the wine. Not bad...we're thinking of making it a Sunday evening tradition.
I also just read that Venice is doing quite the affordable happy hour. I may have to go visit there next.
Anyone else know of any good dining deals in town?
