Best place to eat on someone else's dime...

Michelle | Mar 10, 2002 03:18 PM

My company, a firm believer in the specialness of all of its employees, doled out awards last week, and the big award was the promise of reimbursing us up to $90 for dinner for two. This is a new world for me, as I'm always on the hunt to find the best food for the least amount of money.

Yeah, $90 isn't a fortune, but it's far beyond what I normally spend on meals. I looked at the menus I have from my favorite restaurants, and I'd have to order enough food and drinks for 5 people to get near the magic amount.

So, I'm looking for a restaurant that's fairly unique -- that offers something that no or few others do -- and can allow me to get the most bang out of The Man's buck. The only food I'm not big on is Japanese, but everything else is fair game. Although I'm interested if anyone knows of a real Portuguese restaurant, with the kind of good my grandma used to make. You know, Bacalhau à Braz or Bife à Portuguesa. The ones I've found are either a bit too, well, inventive or inauthentic.
