Birthday dinner for 2

Any recommendations for a birthday dinner spot? We like a Mediterranean menu best. Have loved Oleana and Grotto in the past, but since it's winter I will just miss the beautiful patio and we went to Grotto last year. Looking to spend about $100 exclusive of alcohol. Not really into places with very few entree options and the nose to tail approach.

  1. i dont know if its out of your way but im a HUGE fan of il casale in belmont. I always start the meal with the proseco cocktail-with a candied hibiscus and my bf who is not a big drinker but has been known to polish off a few "carpanos".
    Many great plates to share-and the bread is crusty crusty on the outside and soft and chewy...the burrata is wonderful...the arancini is great...oh now youre making me want to go!
    its got a great cozy atmosphere-dim lights, small tables..
