A Solid Table for 8
Greets fellow CHs,
Got some friends coming in to the city the first weekend in October, primed and ready for a delicious dinner...the onus of responsibility has fallen upon me to select the venue, and I wanted to source out the palates of the venerable CH society :)
The formal request email from my friend was as follows: "I want to have an amazing meal... Must be slightly veggie friendly (at least one option), top quality service and food. But it doesn't have top be crazy expensive/fancy, etc."
So I don't have any restrictions on cuisine type, but off the charts expensive is not on my hit list. Also, there will be 8 of us, so I suppose smaller restaurants are not realistic either. I'd personally like someplace offering seasonal ingredients and a cool vibe in general--nice service and atmosphere.
All said, it's a pretty open request, but if anyone has a suggestion, it'd be very much appreciated!
