Celebratory dinner at a destination restaurant

veddeshpande | Jun 29, 201903:33 PM     17

Hello fellow CHers,

My better half and I will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary later on this year. What I wanted to do was to fly out to somewhere in Europe and have a dining experience at a destination restaurant, so something not in big cities like Rome, Paris, etc. I suppose this should not be a place that requires reservations a year in advance, because our anniversary is coming up! Thank you all in advance for your help!

Edit: To help narrow the field, some criteria:
- Timing: Late November. Probably want to avoid places that are freezing cold.
- Geography: Anything in the Schengen area, avoiding major cities. Location should be beautiful (so seas, mountains, cute village in the hills, vineyards etc.)
- Price: $150 - $350 (without drinks) (I think price in general is a terrible filter, but hopefully this gives some indication as to the type of restaurant I am going for)
- Style: Lengthy tasting menu
- Food: Innovative, but without sacrificing flavor
- Service: Warmth over formality. Level of formality that is fine: Il Centro in Piedmont. Level of formality that is not fine: L'Arpege and the other temples in Paris. I am hoping that 3 Michelin starred restaurants outside Paris are not that insanely formal as those inside Paris...

Apologies if this is not narrow enough!
