Laurel Grill, Masa or Union Bar & Grill for V-Day?
So I've got 3 reservations at these places. Where should I take my girlfriend?
They've all got prixe fixe menus (Masa - $58, Union - $57, Laurel - $49). We love finding new restaurants and want something nice and chic, but doesn't have to be break-the-bank fancy.
It would be great to hear your thoughts. Thanks guys!
Of the three, my pic would be Laurel. It's sort of a hidden gem and therefore a bit more romantic. Union is a solid second choice. Masa a distant third.
I was leaning towards Laurel myself, but was a little scared off from all the "casual dining" experience descriptions online, plus the fact that I haven't actually seen any pics of the interior of the restaurant made me want to shy away. But your recommendation is very promising.
I would say Union Bar & Grille before Laurel myself. Laurel is nothing special...it's decent. But, Union's food is consistently superb and the staff is very accommodating.
My SO and I had gone to Laurel a few years back for Valentine's day dinner. The place was hopping, but they served a very nice meal. I haven't been to the other 2 places yet, so can't comment on those.
Out of those three, Union. Then Laurel, then Masa.
Terramia has a $70 prix fixe tonight (four courses, about 5 choices per course). I love the place, and that's where I'm taking my Sweetie.
Although I wish they had their lobster fritters available. I'd crawl through a raging sleet storm for those.
