Lesser of the evils?

Hey some advice?

I got a certificate for a meal in the mail from my credit card company. I have a choice of nine resturants, each of which are most likely yucky, but i figure I will get the voucher anyway and then deal with it. My question is, which to pick?

Buca di Beppo
Champps Americana
Macaroni Grill
The Olive Garden
Red Lobster
Steak & Ale
Timber Lodge Steak House

I'm sure a number of us have been to one (or more) of these at some point or there some unknown treasure on the list? I seem to recall a rant against Macaroni Grill in one of the "What Jim had for Dinner" so I suppose that one is a no. If anyone could offer some suggestions on how to salvage a decent meal at any of these places, I'd love to hear it!


BTW, went for some okonomiyaki today at Otafuku...bit on the thick side, but satisfying as ever. Plunked myself down on a park bench by Cooper Union and had me a feast. Mmm...
