Tasting menu under $70?

What do you all think of going for the 3-course "prix fixe" at Robuchon's L'Atelier? I've been dying to go but can't justify the prices. Although I do worry that we'll want to stray from the prix fixe once we see the rest of the menu.

Thanks for the suggestion. Would Degustation be considered a romantic place? I know you eat at the bar there.

Tasting menu under $70?

Hi all,
I'm looking for a great tasting menu 4+ courses to take my boyfriend to for his birthday. I'm thinking Mas or Blue Hill, but please let me know if you have other recommendations.
Thanks!

Anyone tried Trestle on Tenth?

Hi there. I tried this place a few months back with my parents. When I heard that the chef was Swiss I knew I had to bring them here to sample the cuisine from a fellow countryman. Needless to say the food is not authentically Swiss, but more New American with a few touches of Swiss cuisine like spaetzle and sausage. I remember the wine list being quite good. I would recommend it if you're in the area already, but not really worth a trek out to it if you're nowhere near.

Best place for dinner in/around Oakland?

A NYC chowhounder here, I'm meeting up with some old friends in Oakland and I'd like to get some recommendations on the best places to go. Thanks!
