Celebrating an anniversary this friday

  • l
  • 4

Hi Chowhounds

I am looking for a nice place to go to celebrate an anniv. this friday the 13th ;)

I was thinking Canoe, or something along those lines. The issue is the menu does not suite our tastes (we are really pasta/chicken/steak eaters) no fish or seafood. While I have eaten and loved Canoe, I am looking for something with a bit more varity.

So what are my options?

I was thinking Sotto Sotto or Bistro 990

What's everyone's thoughts?

thanks!

  1. I would say pass on either of those choices (Sotto2 or Bis990). Both are well-known for their VIP/Hollywood clientele and have the reputation of shortchanging non-VIP's in the service department, while charging high prices. Like I said in a past post, any restaurant you see mentioned too much in Rita Zekas' "Star Gazing" column (the one with all the paparazzi photos) does not deserve CHowhound business.

        How about Mistura. Charming, friendly and lovely food!

    2. If you like pasta, there's Scaramouche Pasta Bar, or La Fenice. Both are expensive, but you did say it's a special occasion.
