Desperately seeking recommendation for wedding anniversary dinner

David Hammond | Mar 7, 200207:24 AM

Like many semi-frequent posters, I roll my eyes every time I read another post from someone looking for a “good place to eat in Chicago.” So imagine my embarrassment as I post this request for a recommendation for a good place to take my spouse for our wedding anniversary on March 20 (at least I think that’s when it is – it’s close to then, at any rate). We’re celebrating a big one (20 years), so I need an outstanding place – not necessarily a “fancy” place, but definitely something a cut above the usual run of places I post about (you know, joints that specialize in patty melts or where you have to eat standing next to your car).

So, what do you think? I need a restaurant within about 20 miles of the Loop, any direction, any ethnicity (though preference would probably be French, Italian or Japanese, if that helps), and a place appropriate to this august occasion. Extra points will be awarded (and believe me, I need them) for obscure,out-of-the-way, little known establishments that turn out to be wonderful.
