All are out of college and working, but I don't want to send them somewhere too expensive. Someplace the girls can dress up a little for date night. Need a fun restaurant with great food. Any ideas?

Thanks!

    Since they'll have a car, here's a suggestion: Jacques-Imos.

      Thanks! That's what I recommended. He called me this morning, so I had to go with something. For fun, I recommended Jacques-Imos and a place called Rambla in the CBD for tapas. Also suggested GW Fins, and then for something nicer, I suggested Brightsen's.

        Too late to the game, on this one.

        But when I read the OP, I immediately thought: The Green Goddess

      Janet,

      Can you offer a few more details?

      Where will they be staying?

      Will they have an auto, and be willing to travel?

      What sort of budget are you talking about?

      What do they love?

      Any food issues, like one is a Level 5 Vegan?

      Thanks, and good luck,

      Hunt

        They are from New Orleans -- but recently moved back.
        They will have a car.
        Budget? I don't know -- just something not over the top.
        No food issues.

          Janet,

          "Over the top" can mean many things to different folk.

          For me, "over the top" would probably be something in the neighborhood of US $ 500 for two, but that might well be way beyond others' idea of a budget.

          Thank you,

          Hunt
