After doing some searches on this forum, I've come to you hounds for some help...
A birthday dinner for the BF-he's going to be 36. We've been to Boa (WeHo), the Lodge, Ruth's Chris', a place in Pasadena that has a country/cowboy theme, the Grill, Pane + Vino, and Taylor's. I would like to try something new. Cut is out of my league as far as expenses go, and I suspect that Mastro's is as well (but there aren't any prices are on the internet menu). Arroyo Chop House is a little far-we're in West Hollywood, but downtown is reasonable.
A friend suggested BLT (she and her husband raved about it), but a lot of you hounds didn't like it. As well as STK.
I was looking at the Dakota, because that is the kind of atmosphere that he likes (as well as Boa + the Lounge). Perhaps Jar?
I thank you for you thoughts (yet again!) and comments.
