If someone said to me "I'll take you anywhere you like for dinner" it would be AD. In the most stunning of rooms, with a friendly and perfectionist wait staff, you will be hard pressed to find the right adjectives to describe your dining experience. And yes, it is very expensive, but for a special occasion - none compare.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
