Sel de la Terre Tasting

This coming weekend my girlfriend and I are going to Sel de la Terre Back Bay. We are trying to decide what menu-route to go. Because it is restaurant week, we could go relatively cheap and just order off of that menu, but this probably wouldn't be our best option because we have a $120 gift certificate. We were also considering ordering off of the regular menu.

My real question, though, is whether anyone here has tried or spoken to someone who has tried the chef's tasting there. I would like to give them a shot to impress me, but I wouldn't bother if it's not typically very good.

Anniversary Night

So I have a pretty specific question. My girlfriend and I are 20 years old, and will be celebrating our 5th anniversary this September. We generally do pretty awesome things for our anniversary (last year we went to L'Espalier, the year before we went to the Capital Grille and a great show).

This year, we're looking for something equally fun (and delicious) to do. Unfortunately, we're a lot poorer than we have been in the past. I was looking for some recommendations on what we could do with a relatively limited budget. We are looking to spend between $125 and $150 each. We would prefer not to go back to a super uppity place like L'Espalier again. We are fairly adventurous eaters, but I typically dislike seafood. We love sushi, though, and our favorite restaurants around Boston are Stephanie's on Newbury and Sel de la Terre.

If you've read this far, you're a real trooper, and we'd love your input! We're willing to try anything once...
