Anniversary Dinner in Wilmington

I'll begin with a disclaimer: Despite the number of Wilmington threads, previous posts are a bit all over the map regarding recs or a bit dated or lacking in replies or focused on different types of dining than what I'm looking for's a new one....

I'm looking for a place for an anniversary dinner, preferably right downtown so we can stumble to our B&B. I'm considering Caprice, Catch, Deluxe, and Jerrys (although, I would rather not have to drive from our hotel near downtown).

I've ruled out Circa as the menu seems to be all over the map and Elijah's menu just doesn't look that interesting. While we would typically do something swankier for an anniversary, we're leaning towards Caprice because we always enjoy good bistro fare and it appears that the chef has a good reputation.

I would really appreciate any thoughts or suggestions as I'm not familiar with Wilmington and I haven't found a lot of solid info one way or the other. One more note, the Mrs. was raised by a chef so, while she's not a snob, she has a fine tuned palate and the food has to be good - that is, it would be better to go more casual and have a great meal than go somewhere with a romantic, white glove ambience and have mediocre meal. Thanks.
