Cut, Josie or Valentino for Anniversary Dinner

Snoopy May 3, 2007 12:08 PM

I realize these are all different types of food, but they are all places that my husband and I have never been (well, I've been to Cut, but he hasn't). Any recommendation as to which one is a "must try." I know that Cut isn't really romantic, are the others? Thanks in advance.

    i've never been to cut, but you can't go wrong with either josie or valentino...both are romantic and have fantastic food.

    if you do go to josie, you MUST order whatever seasonal fruit crumble they have on the dessert menu. always the hands-down favorite...and if it's tomato season & they have the heirloom salad, it's amazing.

    bon appetit, and happy anniversary!

      Had a great meal at Josie. Definately the more intimate spot of your selection. I'd also highly recommend Sam's on West Channel an intimate little spot with excellent food. Sam is the ultimate host.

        Thx. I've never heard of Sam's. Where exactly is it?

        Thanks everyone! Going to make reservation at Josie. Anniversary is not until June, but will report back after our dinner.

            Josie is romantic... it's small and warm and a great place for an anniersary dinner. i've been to Cut and it's fun, but it doesnt have the nice ambiance that Josie has.

              I've never been to Josie, but I hear it's romantic and good. Valentino is a classic; you can't go wrong with it.
