Hi all! So, the ol' birthday is next week and I'm at a loss of what I want to do. I was thinking paella (which I love), but I did that last year at Parizade (which was fantastic) and was thinking I *should* do something else somewhere else.
I see Oliver Twist in Raleigh does paella, but I've never been and I don't see commentary about Oliver Twist on CH. The reviews on Yelp are mixed. I am NOT going to Tasca Brava after that dismal experience a couple of months ago.
I have Italian all the time with the BF, so I probably will forego that cuisine this time around. I really enjoy French, but St. Jacques is a little too intimate for 8 or so people....
Ideally I'd like to go to some place fun and awesome that I haven't been to before that my friends can enjoy and chill on a weekday night. I'd love any advice for Raleigh-area (non-chain) locations from my CH friends. Thank you!
