Bistango in Irvine, CA. Their menu is nice, but their service is a little slow; however, it's worth it just to get a plate of venison and let the chef know you'd like one of their Grand Marnier dessert souffles when you place your order. They take a full hour to prepare, but they are worth it. Parking is meh, but the restaurant has a nice vibe and a great atmosphere just right for date night with the wife.
GINKO located in the basement of the DANTE restaurant. The menu features traditional Japanese Sushi and Shabu Shabu with a modern, Dante twist. The restaurant design features a “River Flowing Water Sushi Bar", and illuminated Wall of Glass designed by Giancarlo Callichia. Come visit Tokyo in Cleveland.
