Searching the board for an update on options for pre-Basie dining.
Our preference is to park in the White street lot, walk to dinner and walk to the Basie. We like to enjoy a bottle of wine with dinner and not worry about driving and parking before the show.
So we've dined at Dish last year and Via 45 last year and again this past Friday. Both were fine, but Via 45 on Friday was not as good as before. Super sloooow kitchen with only a third of the dining room occupied, entrees were good (dijon crusted salmon and grilled ribeye) not great and just OK service.
Looked at Monticello and Bienvenue as options for an upcoming April dinner. Neither have sparkling reviews here.
Any suggestion for a stellar dining option, greatly appreciated.
