My two girlfriend's and I are going to a casual dinner tonight in SM after a spa treatment. Any recs? Preferably more low key because we will be in casual attire and one friend is pregnant.

          Josie's would be good tonight (they do farmer's market prix-fixe on Wednesday, 3-courses for around $35/pp), and I highly recommend tacking on the truffle fries - dress code may be more in the "smart casual" range though. www.josierestaurant.com

          I also recommend Violet's - more casual, mac 'n cheese and the za'tar spiced fries are must-have there. www.violetrestaurant.com

            Il Dolce on Montana and 11th. Most adorable little European style cafe. Haven't been in a few years, but I used to go 2x a week when I lived down the street.
