hello guys, i've had some good suggestions in the past. rolled by madeleines and parkway grill before for dinner dates and they were pretty good. my poor memory doesn't remind me of anything but i recall it was nice.
looking for dinner for 2 for v-day that we can dress up a little for. no alcohol or anything extravagant, but i'd like to keep the tab ~50 (if thats even possible!).
so far some searching has brought Cafe Santorini and Firefly Bistro to my eye. any reaffirmations/experiences/suggestions for food or other places are welcome! i'd like to know as much as i can before deciding, since a lot of reviews i've been reading either are ancient (2, 3+ years old) or say something along the lines of "ever since _____ left, the restaurant has gone downhill" which is disconcerting!
other places recently searched at: bistro39/45, babita (although the reviews mention being crammed in a small space), tulipiano in azusa, daisy mint, bistro de la gare
thanks for your help and
have a great weekend!
