    What a bummer about The Pearl but good to know about the other places. Hope you had a wonderful belated birthday!!

  4. Ooh, I like Cafe 21 (the Adams Ave location)! Their food is great. I like the atmosphere and decor at Cafe 21. Funnily enough, Bert hasn’t been there, only TC, both times that I went. Was there a restriction on the price of the meal?

    Re:The Pearl – well, that sucks. $50 really? Not worth it. I really liked my bday dinner there last year. They didn’t even check my i.d. Talk about trust!

    I haven’t been to El Torito in ages. Are their chips hot and fresh?

    And I’ve never been to the Boathouse or Cafe 21 – will have to sign up for their bday thing next year πŸ™‚

      Thank you, sabas! I think the best of the bunch here was the dinner at Cafe 21. The pork belly was really yummy! Hope you had a great birthday as well!
