romantic place for two

  • g

It's my birthday and I would like to go out to a nice, quiet, romantic resturant where I won't be around a lot of children. Of course, the food has to be great! Thanks.

  1. I don't know what your idea of romance is, but I personally like to be seduced by food and wine before any other seduction takes place. Try these: Jeffrey's, Wink, Ella's, Si Bon, Castle Hill, Gumbo's, Cafe at the Four Seasons, and maybe the best on the list, The Grill at the Driskill Hotel. The kitchen there is run, I believe, by one of Dean Fearing's proteges and the restored 1800s hotel is just spectacular now. If one strikes your fancy, make a posting about it and you're sure to all the info you need.

      My wife and I are going to The Driskill Grill this Friday for an anniversary dinner.

      Greg and others - Any recommendations on what to order?

        I've had the bbq duck burrito, the rack of lamb, and red snapper. All good. I've seen other stuff go by and it all looked and smelled great.
