Concert at Myerhoff and Dinner at ??? for Birthday

wawajb | Feb 27, 2008 11:52 AM

My fiance is taking me to dinner and the Symphony on the Friday after next (They're playing Beethoven's 5th...ideas like this remind me why I'm marrying him). Anyhoo, We are usually on a tight entertainment budget which pretty much precludes eating out at anywhere more expensive than our local pizza joint, but he has declared this plan as being outside the budget since it's my 25th birthday. (the last birthday where good things happen for a while...woohoo lower insurance!)

So, within walking distance of the Myerhoff there seems to be a whole host of interesting options. (Abacrombie, Brewer's Art, Dukem, etc) But...Budget or no, we'd like to keep it still relatively affordable. Like...under $150 (and really under $100 is more like it) with drinks for the two of us. We are both adventurous eaters, though he has no patience for 'cute' or trendy food. And it'd be nice if it was relatively romantic or at least has an interesting vibe. Oh...and if we could actually get pretty dressed up and not look out of place that'd be great too. I haven't gotten to wear any of my pretty dresses in forever.

So what do you recommend...and please give me an idea of the relative costs if you can.
TIA!
