Need place for double date with couples on two different budgets
Any suggestions on a good place for a double date? One couple has a lot of dough and the other doesn't. What suggestions do you all have for a modestly priced place with decent food, not too loud, where you aren't pushed out quickly. For instance, budget-wise a place like A-Frame would be good, but it gets too crowded and you don't feel comfortable having a leisurely meal. On the higher end of the budget, a place like Gjelina would be okay (but we want to try a different place). Westside is preferable though we could travel a bit.

imho, the food is as good as that served at fraiche( admittedly, i'm not much of a fan of fraiche given their prices), but much less costly.
their food is good AND their portion sizes are generous.
meets all of your criteria AND offers a pretty environment too
they offer some very inexpensive, drinkable, house wines to boot.
