I will have to arrange for a group of 6 colleagues (4 from out of town) to go out for a celebratory dinner. In the past, this group enjoyed Ngon Bistro and Muffuletta. I am considering Heartland, Craftsman, and Cafe Levain (for a combination of geographical convenience and excellent reputation) and wonder what your thoughts are.
Heartland: I am considering their wine bar because the price is more within our range than the main dining room's price. But, I wonder about the noise level. Also, they do not seem to take a reservation for a group consisting of more than 4 people. Are we likely to have to wait a long time to be seated on a Sunday around 7 pm?
Levain: My understanding is that, on Sundays, they have a limited a la carte menu in addition to the prix fixe Sunday Supper menu. My group does not have a picky eater. But, I still wonder if the options will seem too limited to some people.
