Eat like a King pay like a Pauper

I apologize for my vagueness. The budget for the evening is $200.00 give or take.. American food preferable(ie: steak, chicken etc) Italian will work as well. My sister and her husband will have a drink or two. My wife is not a drinker at all and since I will be driving I will avoid alcohol for the evening. Pasadena area would be nice. Long beach will work as well.

Eat like a King pay like a Pauper

Need help my fellow chowhounds. I have my sister's wedding anniversary coming up pretty quick and my wife and I are suppose to take my sister and her husband out to dinner for their anniversary. My problem is that I need to find a "nice" restaruant at a affordable price. Location doesn't matter...food does. Looking for a quality restaurant that has good food-nice atmosphere that is VERY affordable.(this economy is killing me!) Thank you for your help and suggestions....

Restaurants at the Grove-Fairfax

Has any one eaten at the Grove lately? The last reviews I read online was that the restaurants at the Grove where mediocre at best. I am taking my teenage son to the movies there this weekend and I will like to take him out to a nice meal afterwards.
Thanks for your Input!

Restaurant with the best prix fix menu

One of my co workers went to the Porter House Bistro in Beverly Hills this last Saturday and ordered off their Prix Fix Menu. He was very disappointed. The rib eye steak he and his wife ordered was just "ok". He also told me the sides where not very tasty and small portions to top it off. I just wondering if some one can please give me a recommendation on a restaurant that has a prix fix menu that won't break the bank and that is worth the drive.
I always appreciate your recommendations my fellow Chowhounds!

Dining in the Pomona area?????

I was asking about the Pomona Valley Minging Company on a previous post and got mixed reviews.(actually they where mostly negative) I am meeting some friends from the Palm Springs area and am desperately trying to find a decent restaurant in the Pomona/Upland Area. It is a "special occasion" dinner and I am looking for a restaurant that will fit the bill.
Need some suggestions Chowhounds...

Peace!

Fosselman's Banana Malt

Soda Jerks on Fairoaks which closed down a while back use to serve Fossilmans ice cream. They use to have a sundae on there menu that was made up of: White Chocolate Chip with hot fudge & Chocolate Rasberry with Rasberry Sauce. Hands down the best sundae I ever had. Every time I go to Fossilmans I have them make that sundae for me. Try it. I GUARENTEE you will LIKE IT!

Zankou type places

Dino Burgers on Pico Blvd has great chicken. It is the epitome of a hole in the wall. I think a half of chicken with fries and coleslaw will cost you $6.00. A Burger joint where every one orders chicken...go figure.

Dolce on Melrose

Can some one please give me some feed back on the quality of the food and service at Dolce. The restaurant it self looks super trendy. When that is the case the food it self usually seems to suffer.
