First, does FIX still do a pre "O" prix fixe menu?
They'll be six of going, either in May or October, we'll likely do two 'nice' dinners and I'm interested in: Seablue, Nobhill, Fiamma, Michael Mina, Bradley Ogden, Daniel Boulud, Stripsteak, possibly Tableau.
I don't know if the others in my group would like Le Atelier, but if people here think it's a level above the other places on my list, then I might try to get them to go for it. We generally seek out a relaxing experience with great food, service and ambience. I don't about Le Atelier, might be able to be talked into trying it.
