Holiday Dinner for 2

My boyfriend and I decided to go out to eat somewhere really nice instead of buying presents for each other this year. We're trying to keep our bill at $100. I was thinking of AOC or Craft. I haven't been to either place. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Also, if you know if there is a corkage fee, please put it in your post.

  1. there's absolutely no way you'll get out of Craft for $100, even if you bring your own wine - the corkage fee is $35.

    AOC might be doable on the food, but they've got a $25 corkage fee.

    wish i had better news for you!

    1. Max's on Ventura Blvd. in Sherman Oaks. My first pick might be Mistral but you are way out of the $100 range per person. At Max's they have no corkage on Monday and 50% off their wine list on Tuesday. The last time I was there the wife and i split the hanger steak but I saw them serving their HAMBURGER ($18) and regretteds that I had not ordered it. Just google Max Restaurant Sherman Oaks and you can look at their dinner menu.
