My husband, who is not a foodie, will be taking me out for a birthday dinner this Monday. For various reasons, we'll be on the early side/6:30-ish. Looking at a few options: Ai Fiori, EMP, WD50, Cafe Boloud. Also, a few not quite as high-end i.e.Fishtail, Little Owl (no res), Locanda Verde (again, no res), Morini. We're completely open. Hoping to find something delicious and innovative but not stuffy, and something someone not into haute cusine will enjoy as well and while cost is not a major concern, would rather not break the bank with $150 tasting menus, etc. Would prefer not to sit in an empty cavernous room, given the day/hour, and downtown is always a plus. I'd appreciate any thoughts!
