We're celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this weekend by taking in a performance in downtown St. Paul. We live in Stillwater. Wanting a recommendation for a place with good food (from appetizer through dessert) somewhere between the two locales that's (a) an intimate setting for the occasion and (b) not going to break the bank.
Have spent some time reviewing the board already, but nothing's jumping out at me -- only because I'm too new to the region to differentiate. I've investigated Bayport Cookery (?) already, but their seatings are well outside what we can do given the performance. We've done The Dock Cafe before, as well as Savouries. The Gasthaus has great food, but isn't quite the setting we're looking for...
"Minnesota Hot" is not an issue for us. Likewise, hoping for something with a streak of character / inventiveness on the menu.
Thanks for any and all suggestions!
