Birthday dinner rec - TONIGHT - someplace like Hattie's but North.

Ok, so this is a little late, but oh well. The title says it all. Anyone got good ideas? No ethnic due to nut/seed allergy of the birthday boy.

      We're at Arapaho and the Tollway. Looking for casual, elegant home-style. Was intrigued at Jasper's, but it seems overrated. Budget is about $60, not including alcohol. He says he wants a steak.. oh, and we aren't into the "scene".

    2. Mirabelle or Sweet Basil on Midway & Trinity Mills...perhaps?

      Maybe not the best but it is a start! Not going to be to modern looking like Hatties either.

        Lavendou is in that neighborhood and better than Mirabelle or Sweet Basil though not much like Hatties.

      2. Well food wise you might want to try Kelly's Eastside. Now not the kind of ambiance etc, but good American style food. Lavendou is great but nothing similar in food style.
