Nice dinner - atmosphere is key

obiwandog | May 14, 2012 12:44 PM

Looking for suggestions on venue to take my wife on a night out without the kid.

She is looking to model her new dress and risk a stumble on some serious high heels.

We are both looking for lively atmosphere without having to scream at each other all night long.

I am looking for good food, excellent service and to keep the whole shebang under $200 – assume appetizer, entrée and wine.

Location: prefer to stay North of Armitage / South of Foster and East of Western

Current backup reservation is at Sola which we both like.
Previous similar (albeit wrong location) night at Sable.
We like places like BrownTrout and Chalkboard – but are looking for more lively, fun, get dressed, atmosphere and these tend to be a little more homey.
Last note: no sushi please and we've been to Deleece to many times so thank you but...
Any thoughts appreciated
