I am looking for a restaurant to celebrate my birthday. There will be 6 of us. Was thinking of something along the lines of La Palette where I had a fantastic birthday. Want very good food and a nice atmopshere, unpretentious and unique. On the short list are Monte Cristo, Mildred Pierce and Grappa. Looking for something interesting as opposed to stylish and not sure where Monte Cristo fits into that criteria? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
