Californios is totally sold out for this weekend. That was my first choice, but the travel arrangements weren’t locked in when they still had availability.
I have to say that I am one of the odd birds who felt ripped off by Saison. I kept waiting for that “ah-ha” moment, and it never came for me.
I had a very good family style meal at Mourad (roast chicken), but not mind-blowing. The tasting menu as posted on their website sounds delicious. I really loved my one trip to Aziza and felt like some of that flavor kick was absent at Mourad, in comparison.
Just a few minutes ago, Prubechu emailed me back and said that they would be able to keep eggs away from my field of vision. I think I just might roll with it. Looks like I am going to be coming up north a bit more in the months to come. Definitely going to hit up the tasting menu at Mourad and take a deeper look at @JonDough 's recommendations above. Especially if I can saddle up to a bar seat and enjoy a nice long tasting menu alone.
