Help! Need a 'nice-ish' restaurant that's open on a Monday night!

HPP | Aug 8, 2005 02:43 PM

Help! Am taking a new dating interest out for a b'day meal tonight, and every place I wanted to go is closed on Mondays!

My short list had included:
Violet
Chameau
Angeli Cafe

(and, of course - all are closed today!)

I'm fairly certain that a higher/nicer-end restaurant isn't his thing (it is mine) - so any ideas for something casual-but-nice enough for a b'day meal would be appreciated. Hopefully my short-list will give you an idea of what I had in mind.

I have always wanted to do Bistro Night at Jiraffe, but was thinking that might be too 'fancy' of an atmosphere (he's a jeans kind of guy) (although, I am open to your thoughts because I haven't been there) - My goal is to have a nice meal (food wise) and have the b'day boy be comfortable in whatever setting we are in.

Also, he's not a sushi eater, but everything else is fair game. I'm in the Pasadena area, but will travel (from Pasadena to the Westside - not really interested in heading south to OC)...

Thanks in advance for coming to my rescue!!
