Looking for affordable dinner: Saturday at 10:00, quiet, steak, shrimp
A good friend (no, really!) is looking for a first-date restaurant, probably BYOB, where quiet conversation is possible, with steak and/or shrimp on the menu, and the total bill is around $50 for two. Probably not too adventurous (e.g. not Khmer Kitchen).
Beyond Friday, Saturday Sunday and a few others, I'm stumped. Please help out if you can.
Thanks for suggesting Matyson. You're right: it would be quiet at 10 and it would probably cost more than $50 total. Even at a place like L'Angelo, it's hard to eat for that price.
Maybe there's a market for a BYO with an excellent, but limited $20 prix fixe menu that includes straight-forward entrees and somewhat more adventurous apps.
Gnocchi near South St (BYOB) would be in your price range. They were doing a thing on weekdays where two people dined for $30 or something like that. They might still be doing that. Last time I went it was quiet because no one else was in the restaurant. Might be more crowded on weekends and it's a tiny space so it would get loud I imagine. Decent Italian food.
