L'Impero vs. Esca for birthday dinner

Peter Flom | Apr 9, 2005 08:02 AM

Hello

My wife's b'day is coming up. We've narrowed the choice to L'Impero and Esca. We've not been to either.

We usually eat out with our kids, so for this, we'd like an adult dinner. We both like Italian food; I am an adventerous eater, she is less so, so we'd like a place that offers both unusual dishes and some more 'normal' fare (not that she's a picky eater or anything, but not one to go for quite the range that I like). Also, we'd prefer a quiet place.

Any thoughts?
Also, would getting a reservation for dinner at either place for late April be possible?

thanks
