If you were given a gift certificate for dinner as a gift, where would it be to?
So my Husband has asked if there are any places I would like to go for a nice meal (dinner/brunch) as a gift for Christmas. Keeping in mind I am allergic to nuts, oysters, calms,and mussels-what suggestions do you have?
I was thinking Spago, Providence, ocean Seafood,Chez Mimi, Inn of the Seventh, Asanebo..but I'm not sure-I would love suggestions of any good place in the LA, Pasadena, San Gabriel, SFV area.
I love pretty much anything without the food I am allergic to..any style, regions, ethnic origin.
I think of gift certificates as opportunities to try places that I have never--and might never otherwise--go. So, twere it me, I'd be choosing something like Providence. Providence sounds like somewhere I'd like, but it is a bit spendy and not particularly convenient for weeknight dining for me. Those factors make it a perfect gift certificate destination for me... with your food restrictions, things might be a bit tougher, but any place worth its salt should be able to work around those issues and should be able to do so with aplomb.
if you get a GC with any one of the Smith Brother's restaurants, they are able to use it at ANY one of the locations:
Arroyo Chop House
Don't know about the receiving end, but I'm more likely to buy one if I can get them discounted.
