Quick Restaurant Question

<< < (2/3) > >>

WillyNilly:
To me those prices are in line with chains like Applebees, TGIFridays, and OutBack - a step above a diner price wise but not fine dining costs, so I think you are in the clear; its a mid-line restaurant.  And it sounds really great for the price with a clear and hip focus (local, in season foods) and good reviews.

Have a fabulous birthday!

I agree, it sounds both reasonable and wonderful!  We have a place nearby that sounds similar,and it is my son's and my favorite place to eat.  (Middle eastern food,actually, but lots of organic/vegetarian options, and everything made fresh.)  Enjoy!

We're both graduate students, so we don't have a ton of money, but neither of us are the typical starving grad student either - we're a happy medium, I'd say. I know he goes out to dinner halfway regularly. I asked him what he had in mind for dinner, and he said for me to choose to go "wherever I wanted". He's also the type of guy that, if I chose something more expensive than he had in mind, would probably not say anything.

I wanted to run the pricing by you guys before I suggested this restaurant to him - do the prices seem reasonable for this kind of outing? Entrees run between $15-$20, burgers/sandwiches are around $10, dinner salads around $8-$10, and appetizers around $7. We'd both probably have a cocktail or glass of wine as well, but those prices aren't listed on the website. I would definitely order towards the cheaper end of the menu, not the priciest thing on there.

The place looks awesome - really hip, using all locally-grown and organic products when possible, and the food looks amazing, with great Google reviews. But I'd like second opinions just to make sure I'm not choosing somewhere that seems too pricey to the rest of you. I'm not used to spending more than $10 altogether at a diner, so it's hard for me to tell if these are okay prices for a "real" dinner. Is this about what everyone would expect to spend on a dinner, or is it too much?

Sounds fair to me.  These prices are what I'd expect to pay at Applebee's or some place similar.

Same here, and to get those prices at a restaurant that uses locally grown, organic produce is fantastic.

SleepyKitty:
Thanks everyone! I think we'll head there tomorrow night then. I'm looking forward to trying it out.  :D
