Looking for a Not Too Hip, Yet Not Too Stodgy Celebration Restaurant

Grimpond | Aug 6, 2004 11:26 AM

OK, so my wife and I are celebrating our 1 year wedding anniversary. We're generally not fine diners, so I'm a bit out of my element here. We're in our late 20s. We're not loaded by any means, but are willing to splurge for a special occasion. I don't want to go to a stuffy temple of fine dining, but still want someplace with excellent food, great atmosphere, and accomodating service. I want to go somewhere hip, but not over-the-top. Someplace timeless and classic where younger people might still go.

Is that vague enough for everyone? Any tips would be appreciated.
