last winter, you kind folks steered me to some great eats while in town on business with my girlfriend. of all the places i ate, i swooned most at hatfields...in my opinion, just right up my alley and a total stellar meal.
im returning in 2 weeks (albeit with a new girlfriend). ive scoured these boards and other resources but im not sure where to take her for a special evening. i have reservations for providence but i have hesitations about the price and the environment. id like dinner in a more intimate environment (a la hatfields) and was under the impression that providence may be a bit sterile.
other ideas were sona and possibly grace...i wish i got a chance to try bastide but i think ive seen they've recently closed again.
any ideas? food-wise, im a saddle of lamb/rack of lamb type.
