Hubby and I can't afford to go to France for our 30th wedding anniversary, but we're going to pretend for a long weekend: staying at a 4 star French-owned hotel (Sofitel), going out to the theater (Guthrie), and having a romantic dinner, pulling out all the stops, at a French restaurant. This will be a big deal to we Country Mice, and a hit to our modest budget, so we don't want to make a mistake! We want to have a wonderful time and wonderful memories....
So...I can't tell which restaurant to choose. Both seem to be in the Tops in the Twins category, but we're looking for the *best* food first, then atmosphere and charm. We also would appreciate feeling welcome and not snootified because we're aforementioned Country Mice. Your opinions--or suggestions of an alternative--greatly appreciated.
