10 Year Anniversary. Need awesome reco for this Thursday eve!!

My wife and I want really comforting, really delicious and a nice overall experience. It can be casual or it can be slightly more sophisticated.

Bouchon?
Hatfields?
Palate?
Other?

THANKS!!!!

  1. Don't discount Campanile. Since it opened, we've gone there every year for our anniversary. (Ask for a table in the back for a little more privacy) I'd give it a solid B+. (that's a grade amortized over the last 20 years.) Check out their website and Happy Anniversary. 10 years is something to celebrate these days.

      Thanks Steve. Very kind of you to say so. We've been to Campanile a lot and love it. I think we are thinking beyond the classic perennials this year. But, thanks!

    2. Providence or Melisse.
      Do a tasting menu of course.

      1. Happy Anniversary! You should consider Melisse, Ortolan and Providence as top choices.

          I've heard good stuff about Ortolan. Thanks.

        2. I would pick Providence, but doing the Chefs tasting at Hatfields would be a good choice. ask for a booth right in front of the kitchen. it makes for some fun watching! adds a little different element to your dining experience.

          1. I'd say go for the tasting menu at Spago. Spago will be there for your 20th.

                + another 1 for Spago. I think it's gotten a little expensive but still, it's classy and the grub is outstanding. Definitely splurge on the tasting menu.
