In two weeks my husband and I are celebrating our anniversary with "Spring Awakening" at the Marcus Center, and we'd love to have a great meal before the show. Depending on what we find, we might do an anniversary dinner on Sunday in Madison and a smaller dinner the Saturday before.
We've been to Bartolotta's Lake Park Bistro (very good, but more expensive than I'm looking for this time) and Coquette (excellent). We also loved Three Brothers.
I'm considering Sanford, Sala da Pranzo or Crazy Water. We recently had a great meal at the Hinterland in Green Bay, so that's definitely on the list too.
We'll probably bring a bottle of good wine and pay corkage (buying a couple of glasses after the show, maybe). We're young and on a budget, but we want to celebrate. Rec's?
