Richmond, VA Special Occasion

Help! My hubby's 40th is this coming weekend. I want to ***wow*** him with a true Richmond restaurant. He is a recent transplant to the Richmond area and he has been underwelmed by Richmond restaurants (I lived here years ago and love many restaurants)....Until last weekend when we went to Zeus Gallery -- his "best Richmond dining experience yet" -- fabulous food. Now, for the 40th, I'm trying to toour Zeus experience. I've read many posts...Last year we went to Bookbinder's (downtown) for his day, we go to Bottega's and Bookbinder's Grille weekly, Edo Squid many times, also have done Sensi, Millies, Julep's, Bank, Amici, Accacia, Pomogrante, Europa, Hard Shell, all the safe touristy places (ie Tobacco, Sam Miller, etc) ...

My original plan was Azzuro's, but it is such a safe option. I am contemplating Si as tapas was our first date, but he often prefers a to have a "real meal". Are Cabo's or Bacchas any good? Any other fan or downtown suggestions are much appreciated. We like really good food (except French), does not need to be stuffy but nice is good, he likes low lighting, background (speaker is fine) music and interesting menu. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
