Pif, Pumpkin or Matyson? (or maybe xochitl?)

going into town on tuesday evening for dinner and i cannot decide where. we want it to be fairly casual - it'll be my sister, her husband, and me, for birthdays). a byo is always a good choice but it's not mandatory. i can't seem to find any recent info on either pif or pumpkin, and i can't get past all the postings about matyson. so i am asking....thx

    1. Sorry about that. I didn't see your post. If it isn't too late, Pif has been terrific lately. I've also heard great things about Xochitl, but haven't been myself. Of your choices, I'd put Pumpkin at the bottom. The others are all probably similar quality, but very different experiences. It just depends what you are looking for.

      1. I'd go with Pif, too. Agree with Hungry that Pumpkin would be my last choice--not bad, but for my taste, ordinary.

        1. I'd rank Pif the best, then Matyson, then Pumpkin. They're all good restaurants, I don't think you'd be disappointed at any of them. If you've never been to any of them, Pif should definitely top the list. Never been to Xochitl, but people I know who have say it's pretty good.

          1. I think Pif is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. I'm not sure, you may want to check it out first. As Buckethead mentioned, you shouldn't be dissapointed with either choice.
