Hoping to find someplace with a romantic atmosphere that won't scoff at my lack of shiny shoes and won't be too crowded tomorrow night. I'm in the Burbank area and can't get out of the office till around 9:00. I don't mind driving as far as Santa Monica, but I'd need someplace that will serve till at least 10:30.
Looking to spend under $35 a plate for chop house, ethnic fusion, or European. Nothing too exotic, I've already discovered my ladyfriend doesn't enjoy spicy food and I don't think tomorrow is the night to test foie gras. Something low-key but of obvious culinary skill would be ideal. Stear clear of plastic table cloths and I'll be a happy man.
Thanks for the help and advice, I gotta learn to keep a better eye on the calendar.
