the fiance and i are total foodies and we're trying to decide where to go for a romantic and delicious valentine's day dinner. we'd ideally like to try somewhere new, and while we're willing to splurge on something really excellent, price is a consideration. we went to wink back in november and loved it, but again we're looking for something new.
here are some of the places we're thinking about. please comment on value, atmosphere, and most importantly the food:
- uchi - we went here about 3 years ago and were both totally underwhelmed and are considering giving it another chance. i don't know if we ordered wrong or what, so if you like uchi, please advise on what to order.
- fonda san miguel - heard great things about their brunch... what about dinner? is it worth the price?
- chez nous - i lived in france for a while so my expectations for french food are pretty high. not uniquely austin, but we live here so that's ok.
- hudson's on the bend (i know there's a decent amount about this place in a recent thread)
- castle hill cafe
anywhere else we should consider
thanks in advance! is this austin-specific forum new to chowhound?? exciting!
