Need help with my girlfriend's birthday dinner

NightMan | Jan 24, 201212:55 PM

Hello all, If we're talking inner loop restaurants, I never have this problem, but I want to take my girlfriend out for dinner somewhere in the vacinity of Houston (less than 4 hours away), somewhere in a small Texas town that will be charming and away from all the city buzz. I will be taking her out on her birthday--- that's probably worth mentioning ;) So far, I am considering 814: A Texas Bistro in Comfort, TX and Welfare Cafe in Welfare (Boerne), TX. Both places were recomended on this site and both places look like they could be a lot of fun; the food looks to be exellent. My concern with both of these places is that they are perhaps, not nice enough, particularly "814." Too casual... not exactly overwhelming ambiance. So, assuming that I have a budget of about $300 or less for dinner what is the absolute best restuarant that you can think of somewhere in a small Texas town, less than 4 hours from Houston? I don't particularly care what style of restuarant so long as the food is spectacular and the ambiance is charming, romantic, etc. Any help would be much appreciated.
