The Wife and I are nearing our 9th year anniversary and Im looking for a place to take her. We were going to go to some of our old favorites in the spaghetti bender,marche modern, or Capn Jacks but she thought we should try something new.

So we are looking for a wine friendly locale(may bring my own and pay corkage) that has good food and is one price level below that of marche moderne. We loved marche modern but over a hundred books at this point is unrealistic. So I would love to hear any suggestions. We are in South OC but anywhere in OC would be OK provided its not Brea or that area. Once again look forward to your thoughts.
