OC Advice Needed - Romantic Dinner

Seth Chadwick | Nov 1, 200512:28 AM

Howdy, all, from Phoenix!

I normally post over on the Southwest Board, but I am heading to OC over in a couple of weeks to see my fiance and would like to do something romantic with good food.

Here are a few parameters, if you could help:

Cost: $100 to $150 for two, not including wine.

Cuisine: French, Asian, Italian, local steakhouse. We aren't that picky, but God save me from another trip to a chain restaurant.

Dress: Business casual to suit and tie.

Area: Any part of OC is fine. I live in Phoenix, so I live half my life in my car already and driving is not an issue.

Ambience: Someplace where you can look dreamily into the eyes of your fiance. At the very minimum a votive on the table.

Home base: I will be staying in Foothill Ranch, so if there is something outside of OC, but nearby, that would be grand.

Misc.: My fiance is the foodie, while I am the chowhound.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for helping out a chowhound in Phoenix!
