Anniversary Dinner for August in Tucson

Hi Chowhound friends! i would appreciate feedback on where to surprise my husband for our Anniversary romantic dinner in Tucson. Right now, I'm considering Le Rendez Vous-but, not sure if the quality is so good with changes going on there this year. I'd consider taking a risk if it were a regular dinner, but not our 'special night'. The other thought is Vivace. Thank you. :)

Thanksgiving Dinner@ The Bird and Bottle

Thank you for the feedback! If first impressions count, then I was most pleased with initial telephone conversation. Elaine was warm, inviting, and gracious. She spent a decent amount of time addressing all of my questions and concerns.

Thanksgiving Dinner@ The Bird and Bottle

My research led me to strongly consider The Bird and Bottle for Thanksgiving this year.
Before, I make the reservation..any feedback from Chowhounders?

Thanksgiving Dinnner 2010-Dutchess, Putnam, or Ulster County

Our extended family of 20 celebrates Thanksgiving by eating out at restaurants within
a one hour drive from Poughkeepsie. The meal was so entirely uneventful this year.
I am now searching for next year's restaurant. Thank You!

Radio City Music Hall

Two couples are looking for a moderately priced restaurant for a pre-concert dinner
this week. Virgil's is one possibility. We're thinking about BBQ, burgers, basic fare, etc. Although, a good beer selection is a consideration, it's not the most important feature..Thankee!!

Birthday Dinner-Keen's or Wolfgang's

Some elaboration...The dinner is for my husband. Of course, the quality of the food is most important..because it's his B-day, I wanted an intimate setting.
I thought Striphouse would fit the bill. Then I canceled the reservation.
Currently, I have reservations at Wolfgang's...but, now wonder if Keen's is the place?
With any other food subject, I'm quite secure. It's just this steakhouse subject that has
me a bit loopy.. ;)

Just not sure what to do? Will be ordering 'porterhouse for two'.

Birthday Dinner-Wolfgang's or Striphouse?

OK, so for a 'first time' porterhouse dinner would you recommend Wolfgang or BLT?
And, do you prefer Wolfgang midtown or Tribeca? I was considering midtown.
What was missing from Striphouse for you?

BTW, the reservation is at the midtown location...

Birthday Dinner-Wolfgang's or Striphouse?

My husband's birthday is coming up and I'd like to surprise him with a steak dinner.
Although, Chowhound is extremely helpful, I'm left feeling more confused on this subject.
Originally, I had made reservations at Striphouse. I canceled and made new reservations
at Wolfgang's. Well...I'm still not sure. My concern is that Wolfgang's will be more emphasis on
the atmosphere (too slick) and less on the product. The reason I backed out of Striphouse was I thought their product has waned.
My objective: Delicious Porterhouse in a warm, cozy room
About us: Have lived in new York a long time and have never been to a steakhouse. This will be a big deal.
FYI, BLT is another possible thought. Not interested in the atmosphere of PL and Keene's.

Tucson-50th Birthday dinner for 4

well, no need to discuss Primo, Wildflower and Acacia.
We did not want to spend that much moola..

So, perhaps, it will be Vin Tabla.

Tucson-50th Birthday dinner for 4

Thank you lawyerbriefs for your helpful response. Yes, my husband and I really like The Dish and its subdued ambience. But, the birthday woman loves to share and resides in Scottsdale.
(And her husband is a lawyer like you?) So, maybe she'd dig the lively, hyper atmosphere..

By the way, they're staying at The Omni. Anything else you can think of?
What about The Gold Room at Westward Look?

Tucson-50th Birthday dinner for 4

We wanted to celebrate our friend's 50th at The Dish, my favorite restaurant in Tucson.
But, they're on vacation the month of July. They suggested VinTabla.
I'm not sure about the concept of extensive sharing as a dining experience.
>Any feedback on VinTabla?
>Where else should we consider?

We've been to Hacienda and Janos..it's OK.
Also, Poca Cosa and Barrio..can't get too excited.

Really, I prefer only The Dish.. for the quality of food, service and atmosphere..
Your thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Best Downtown Asian Delivery

Just poor quality...IMHO, the food has gone way downhill at SEA.

Best Downtown Asian Delivery

Since it's not possible to get Saigon Grill delivery because of a major strike by the delivery men..
Where can I get great Thai or Vietnamese delivery to Nolita??
FYI, I had my last and final delivery tonight from SEA.

Best Downtown Moderate Japanese

I meant Sushi (as well as non-sushi).
Soba-ya is great, I agree!

Roasted Garlic @ The Red Hook Inn

This Thanksgiving my husband and I are hosting turkey dinner at The Roasted Garlic. We have never eatten at the RG.
Any reviews of this restaurant would be appreciated!
We chose this establishment because of the location and price.
Of course, we're hoping the food will be great!!

Thanksgiving Dinner in Dutchess County?

My husband and I are "The Hosts" for our extended family of 18 members. This means we pay for dinner, not cook.
Any suggestions for a $30-$40/person restaurant serving this holiday dinner??????
Red Hook, Fishkill, Hopewell Junction, Poughkeepsie, Beacon, Hudson are all fine.
(Already called two establishments in Rhinebeck that want $45/person.)
