    Ethnic? Does the austrian influenced food qualify as ethnic? Anyway, a very interesting dining room and delicious food. See other posts below on Danube.

      Try Tabla for ethnic, it's more like soft ethnic, as it's Indian-inspired French, or vice versa. And it's a good place for a celebration, if pricey. Service is fine, decor's elegant but fun, and the place is pretty civilized. But if you want pure ethnic, this is not hard-core.
