looking for a dinner place for anniversary?
My choices for an anniversary dinner would include (sorted mostly by price - low to high):
Acquerello (Italian - Northern)
Gary Danko (California/Contemporary)
You can keep it at $100 per at any of these places by watching the wine tab.
Neither Zuni nor Piperade seem special enough for such a celebration.
I enjoyed a special anniversary dinner last August at Quince. It was a lovely experience - from the ambiance to the service to the food. The dinner rolls are addictive, and it's the best pasta I've ever eaten.
Here are more reviews:
Reviews have been sufficiently mixed that I'd hesitate to go there for the first time on a special occasion:
Piperade, my review here: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/show/311040?user_name=&query=piperade%2C+sf
