La Griglia D’oro Amanda Gabrielli July 10, 2013 Food+Drink Attention fellas: if you’re looking for a tasty, decently priced and chic resto to take a lady on a date, I highly recommend La Griglia D’oro. The atmosphere is sexy, food is on point and the service is fabulous. La Griglia D’oro’s dishes have so much flavour and pizazz. It really is top notch Italian cuisine. They have a wide variety of dishes ranging from perfectly grilled steaks, fresh seafood, delicious pasta to some snazzy desserts. The inside is cozy and beautifully decorated. Also, If it’s date night you’ll definitely be feeling the romance in here. Queue Barry White music. Aside from the laidback, loungey decor, the food is another fucking story. Their menu can be a tad overwhelming, as there is so much to choose from and you just want to fucking try it all. But unless you’re a billionaire, I don’t suggest you do that.
