Advice, please, on special occasion restaurant in Aptos/Santa Cruz area
8 friends from across the country are gathering in a rented house & we'd appreciate recommendations for a place for a landmark birthday meal. For this occasion, our budget is pretty high but since we'll have to leave kids with a babysitter we don't want to travel far from home base, so San Francisco or even San Jose restaurants are not an option. We have one person who doesn't eat meat, but does eat fish.
I appreciate your advice!
