    1. Assuming we're talking about dinner, I'd recommend Meritage.

        We loved Meritage.

        Also loved Fish, at 17th and Lombard. Only fish and seafood.

        Both outstanding places - casual, comfortable, creative.

          Second Fish. Have not yet been to the new Meritage but heard good things.

      2. Matsyon, if you can get a reservation.

        1. Matyson or Melograno, for a BYOB experience. I don't think Melograno takes reservations but if you can show up right at opening time you'll get a table no problem. Outstanding Italian, not your standard red-gravy fare by a long shot.

          Also second the rec for Meritage. Excellent place with great small & large plates, good drinks & wine list.

          For a splurge, might want to check out Lacroix as well. Have only been for the amazing brunch, but have to imagine the rest of the menu is outstanding as well.
