I'm taking someone new to an event at the Performing Arts Center this Saturday night. Since this is a first date, I'd like to take her someplace nice and unhackneyed. But also since we haven't yet discussed food preferences, I don't know what cuisines she likes, whether she's a vegetarian, etc. So some varied suggestions (preferably within striking distance of the venue) would be appreciated.
I don't eat anything from the sea, so sushi is right out, unless it's someplace where I can get "turf" for myself.
Thanks in advance.
