Ok everyone. Need your help.

Celebrating first wedding anniversary on 11/1/2009. (Chowhub and I have been together for 10+ years) but still want to have a great time!

We like everything from burgers/sammies at Nook (I don't eat beef, hubs does), to family eats at Mirror of Korea, to sushi at Origami, to some upscales like Nicollet Island Inn. Hubs does not enjoy the dress up part much (he's a motocross guy), but will gladly for the occasion. Hubs also loves seafood (Sadly, Im allergic, usually not a problem tho when we're out).

We want to choose a place together. Here are my thoughts:

112 Eatery (Yum, but been there)
Restaurant Alma (yum, but been there)
W.A. Frost (cocktails/apps only)
Seven Sushi Lounge (had cocktail in bar before Fogo but never eaten, reviewed menu)
Zahtar (never been)
Strip Club
Grand Cafe (been there, not sure if hubs would like)

I always see great reviews for Meritage, Heidi's, LBV, Vincent's etc. but I'll be honest-not a French fan - I've eaten at LBV, Vincents - and I've come to the conclusion that my French likings extends to un croque monsieurs and Barbette. Don't want to spend my $ that way.

Anyone want to help us make our decision? We will probably choose the Tuesday of that week (3rd) since we have a wedding on Halloween. Price-no factor for this occasion. (for app, cocktails/wine, dinner, dessert).

Want to stay up to date with this post?
