Looking for upscale, somewhat trendy 'can't miss' places in SB. Coming from NYC, where we like and consider 'can't miss' fun, typically New York places here to be Babbo and Balthazar, though we also love Per Se, Daniel, Bouley etc, yet not looking for the ultra high-end when in SB.
Places that are fun, hip (but not for 20-somethings hip), with excellent food and ambiance. Any cuisine, but might prefer the Floridian style when there.
Your thoughts on these for lunch or dinner:
And look forward to hearing about your favorite recs!!
