Wifey and I have our 5 year anniversary this Friday and would love some suggestions from area hounds.
We live in Farmington so I'm looking for some picks in the valley or Hartford, but can be persuaded to take a trip further out. Just need to get home by 10:00 to bounce the sitter.
Budget is not a problem. Looking for nice anniversary dinner ambiance, can be trendy and/or romantic, just not loud. We're flexible on food type but wifey picks dishes that are not heavy or fried and loves a great salad course and sinful chocolaty dessert. She appreciates gorgeous plate presentations. Local farm-to-table choices is a nice bonus. (Yes, we've been to Firebox - great place.) We don't drink alcohol so wine list isn't a factor.
(Suggestions for gifts also welcome :)
