What do you do when you have a prime-time reservation at a celebratory, event-type restaurant but are crushingly depressed?
When I made my reservation at Yvonne's last month, I honestly wasn't even thinking about the election - I just had a brutally busy week at work, knew it would continue for a while, and thought that trying out Yvonne's would be a nice end to the work week. Now my reservation is tonight, I've been sad for the last three days, and I don't know how to feel like celebrating anything. The whole thing feels wrong, but I'm not going to give up my reservation.
So with that in mind, any recommendations? I'm thinking brown drinks and food that doesn't throw ostentation in my face - but would be happy to hear what other folks love or think we shouldn't miss.
