"Has anyone dined at these restaurants?"

No, I haven't. Just wanted to comment to make it seem like you have at least one legitimate reader. BTW, can you return my snow shovel? Thanks!

I've been to Carlos' and really enjoyed their classic bistro French food. Since its kinda pricey, I love to go on Mondays when they allow BYOB. Best kept wine-o secret in the city. They totally break out the nice Riedel and decanters and everything and most of the Monday regulars are happy to share tastes from their cellar.
