Nice relaxing dinner in Arcadia?
The girl i'm seeing lives out in Arcadia she's eaten at most every Dim sum place out there and noodle house, but doesn't like crowds or too much noise. So were looking for a place tonight that does not have a BIG crowd, is upscale but NOT stuffy. Places that look something like vertical wine bistro relaxing dark intimate.
Any and all rec's appreciated.
Price doesn't matter although reasonable would be nice. Any type of food and it has to be within 2 or 3 minutes of arcadia.
I'd suggest heading over to Monrovia - there are a few nicer places there (Cafe Mundial, Caffe Opera, Restaurant Devon, a couple of newer Asian places) although tonight is the Farmer's Market on Myrtle and it can get pretty crowded in the streets.
Sesame Grill in Arcadia might fit your bill too-I think their decor is a little off but it's a decent, dim atmosphere. There's an Indian restaurant called Nirvana a few doors down from Sesame Grill and last time I ate there it was almost too quiet. The food was tasty though. There's also the Derby across the street. There's not much to come by in terms of upscale in this area. Oh, another place just came into mind. In the little town of Sierra Madre (right near Arcadia), there's a place called Lozano. I've never eaten there but it advertises itself as a fine dining restaurant and it shouldn't be too crowded. http://www.restaurantlozano.com/
