I'm looking for a place to go "for" Valentine's Day. Fortunately me, my girlfriend understands that we're not likely to go out on Saturday itself. We're much more interested in saving our money and getting a better deal/better service/better food on a day somewhere near Valentine's Day.
Ideally I'm looking to spend somewhere under $150 for the both of us (if we could get under $100 that'd be ideal) including tax, tip, food and wine (if possible). We really enjoy tasting menus, or some sort of "full meal" rather than just ordering a la carte, but we can be persuaded if the right food is the right price.
She won't eat sushi. That's about it. Restaurants we enjoy (for reference) include Grace, Comme Ca, Hatfield's, Gordon Ramsey
We're willing to go for a special evening or for lunch instead of a dinner if the offer is better. Any suggestions?
