birthday dinner. EM BISTRO?

I'm being taken to dinner for my birthday in a couple of weeks ... I checked Zagat, and EM Bistro sounds good to me ... anyone been there lately?

    For what it's worth, EM Bistro was good. :-)

    I suggest you go to JAR, which is right across the street, for a phenomenal birthday dinner.

    Or, for al fresco Italian dining and definite celebrity sightings, Pane e Vino, which is also across the street.

      i agree - i really liked EM bistro, and Jar is a great spot for a birthday dinner, with a somewhat similar feel and menu. lucques is another nice spot for a celebration in that general vicinity.

      It closed and became Solare, which has also since closed.
