I'm taking the girlfriend out for a nice dinner Saturday night. I'm trying to decide between Applewood and Stone Park. Here are the facts:
-- I have a 7:30 reservation at Applewood -- I know Stone Park only takes walk-ins...
-- We like good food -- Al Di La is our favorite in the neighborhood.
-- We like nice wine though we know next to nothing about it.
-- We're looking for amazing "Oh my god you have to tatse this!" food. Nice service and a not-too-loud room (As in Song or Joya) is nice too.
-- I tend to prefer hearty dishes... braised pork cheek, short ribs, etc.
-- I've read a lot of what's on these boards already and that didn't really help me make up my mind.
Opinions? Can't miss dishes at either of these places?
