The man says anywhere I want - oh no!

I need your help. I'm just really horrible at making decisions.

My sweet & wonderful boyfriend says he'll take me anywhere I want for my birthday! He doesn't realize that he's handed me a loaded gun. I'd like something transcendent. That's not too much to ask, is it? Ha-ha. But I'd love for it to be a mind blowing experience for BOTH of us.

I looooove sushi, and haven't had any good stuff in a long time. But he doesn't eat fish. Or avocados, raw tomatoes, mushrooms, tofu. I know, it's been hard for me. So if I did pick a Japanese place, I'd want to pick a place with yummy cooked stuff, too.

Or, perhaps French. Bastide is out, y'all just don't seem impressed enough. I'm curious about Grace, EM, Opaline. But I'd rather have delicious food over a scene. And, truthfully, I don't want him to experience any sticker shock (like a $40 entree).

And good lighting. I'm a freak about lighting. I know I'm only supposed to care about the food, but...!

Location: downtown to the east, La Cienega to the west, Pico to the south, and Ventura Blvd to the north - but preferably Los Feliz/Silverlake/downtown.

Hmm, maybe I AM high maintenance. Damn.

Thanks for your help - it's greatly appreciated.
