For our anniversary, my wife wants to go back to the garden at L'Auberge Chez Francois. I do think the garden is very romantic. However, as I do not eat shellfish, crab, or lobster, the number of menu choices I have at L'Auberge Chez Francois are limited. Plus I am not a big fan of French cuisine.
Thus, I am seeking some alternatives -- preferably in a country/garden setting as L'Auberge is.
I have read about Stone Manor (in Middletown, MD.) in Washingtonian and Zagat's as a good place to go for a romantic evening. Any reviews/recommendations? Another place I am thinking about is Ashby Inn.
I know that Inn at Little Washington would fit my category but the cost is more than we we want to pay for our dinner.
