Impressing her parents tonight on Atlantic/Smith?

FixUpLookSharp | Jul 20, 2005 12:19 PM

My girlfriend and I recently moved to Cobble Hill on Atlantic Ave. Her parents just called letting us know they are in town tonight to check out our new place and take us out to dinner. They're fairly well to do, and a bit leery about us living together - so I figured, "Hey, I'll wow them with my good taste and discerning palate!"

I'd love to stay close to home on Atlantic, but I can't think of anything to show off (I don't think they'll share my love of Chip Shop, Waterfalls, or Floyd's beer cheese). I'd also like to steer clear of specials - while I love Bacchus and Chestnut on Wednesdays - I don't think those are what I'm wanting for this meal.

Unfortuantely I can't get a reservation that works at Grocery on short notice. If we eat on Smith/Court - I think postmeal drinks at Sample or Robin Du Bois are mandatory and will help in at least selling the 'hood.

That's my situation -- anyone have advice to share? Thanks!
