<Powderpuff>: my parents actually just got back from Paris, so they're into the whole French food even more than they had been before =P Fleurie is in my top 4 right now, and it's just down to what kind of cuisine I want.
<Griffon>: You gave me too many choices! =P Downtown Grill and Hamilton's both look excellent, and I'm a huge fan of surf&turf but Hamilton's seems to have a great selection of everything. Of the two, which do you recommend? (PS- i'm a girl =) the name fools, but it's an old nickname)
<Dean J>: Ivy Inn rounds out the top 4. Sounds like a great little cozy place, which is what I've grown used to and love!
<ChrisDonovan>: depending on how much you what to spend, there are a bunch of places off the top of my head that would be great for the family. Mellow is a great suggestion, as most kids love pizza, and they also have hogies/calzones/salads for the parents, plus much more "daring" pizza toppings than just the cheese/peps/sausage (jerk chicken, mushrooms galore, every veggie known, Jamaican pork, buffalo mozzarella, etc). Pizzas are priced as any normal pizza place, hogies are $8-12, salads $6-12, tons of beers on tap. College Inn on the Corner is moderately priced, and good Italian-type food good for everyone. If your kids are a tad explorative in foods, Basil on 14th St behind the Corner is good, a little pricier ($10-18 for entrees) and they have Med/Italian type food with anything from raviolis to pizzas to gyros to all sorts of pastas, could turn into a nice dinner. Is there anything specific you're looking for in niceness/price/food?
Thanks everyone for the suggestions
It's my 20th birthday and my parents have taught me to eat well, so that's why I'm looking for higher end. But everyone should post whatever restaurant they suggest to anyone for whatever occasion
