OK, looking for good cocktails, decent wine list, informed service, and delicious food trumps all.
I am thinking Boucherie is the one, but it may be too casual. Not looking to impress anyone, however I would like it feel like a night out, not just eating.
Does this give you anything to work wi...

Will be in town in a couple of weeks and looking to try a restaurant we haven't been to yet. While Peche would be my first choice, it is booked solid.
Of these, where would you go and why.
Other suggestions welcomed.

We went when it first opened, 2004 I think. It was named Ikal del Mar then. It was incredible. I think it has expanded since then, but the room was great, cool bathroom/outdoor shower and the plunge pool was nice. Each room is very private and secluded. ;) My only concern would be if you are lookin...

I agree with the posters above if it is a straight forward trip. But if you are going off the beaten path or are looking for something special, an agent can be a help.
Also, they will note on all the bookings that it is a honeymoon and will try to score you upgrades....

Actually, I haven't found one I don't like. First discovered it in NYC 10 or so years ago. Made my day when I saw it in the Ruston Super 1. Making it isn't hard, but Sabra is convenient and as good as homemade. Kind of like Hellman's mayo. You could make it, but why?...
| Food and Drink Board|| re: Does This Hummus Recipe Seem Legit? - rsb831 on 2/16/13 at 11:39 pm|

Bacco Italian Grille. Haven't been yet or heard any first hand reports, but 34 of 40 people on Urbanspoon like it, including Cory Bahr.
You are right about the location. Maybe this one will break the curse.

I agree about LBK's being greasy. Don't know if my heart or waistline could take that much "practice".
I think Johnny's regular pizza in much better than the buffet. Almost like two different recipes.
