No res at Apiary or Scarpetta...where to go?
Last minute, decided to do a joint birthday dinner with some friends. Thought we might get lucky on reservations since Saturday is the 4th, but....no go. Apiary was my first choice, Scarpetta my second--neither have availabilities. Where else, 'Hounds? Perilla is open, but have already been there--would consider going back. Not looking for something along the lines of EMP; more casual, less pricey, fun but not loud? Any neighborhood is fine--would love to hear what you all think!
Weather is supposed to be beautiful, so why not try the garden at Gascogne? Food is great, atmosphere is casual, garden is gorgeous, prices are reasonable.
Here are some great places that show availability on Opentable:
I would definitely point you in the direction of Alto. Can't say that it's super casual, but the cuisine is along the lines of scarpetta and convivio.
We absolutely love it. Although I'm not certain they are open this weekend.
