anniversary dinner challenge 2005

hi chowhounds,

every year my partner and i splurge on a really nice meal to celebrate our anniversary. we are both grad students and live on a budget, but we both adore a quality dining experience. however, because we can't do this very often, we really want to make sure that if we are laying down a huge chunk of change, we are getting our moneys worth. we have tried some of the higher-end places in the past, and though the food was usually pretty amazing, we felt that the high-end attitude and the atmosphere made the experience a bit mixed, almost to the point of feeling relief when we returned to our downscale but familiar "cheap-eats".

can anyone recommend a place where we can spoil ourselves a bit with a meal that will make the experience match the dip in our bank accounts? we would be willing to go to any borough or outlying area for a truly unique and satisfying (and of course romantic) meal. by the way, we eat anything and everything, the more adventurous the better. thanks in advance for your suggestions.
